Top photo © Salty Sailing. Cowes-based RYA Sailing School and yacht charter company Salty Sailing aims to make sailing fun, encouraging everyone to get out on the water and give it a go - in a calm and supportive environment.
Sail and powerboat training schools are an important part of the Cowes Harbour Shepards Marina community, and we encourage training schools to be frequent visitors with our attractive berthing discount scheme.Shepards Marina is a great location for training schools
, being just a couple of minutes from Cowes High Street and all the shops, restaurants and pubs, and yet the marina is just far out enough from the centre to be away from the hustle and bustle of the town.Sailing Schools Berthing:
Registered sailing schools are eligible for a 10% discount on marina berthing fees all year round.
Discounts not applicable during major events. Terms & Conditions apply. Register at the Marina Office.
Another advantage for training schools is our waterfront Events Centre, The Sugar Store
, which is extremely useful for training days or meetings, and has rooms to cater for small groups, plus the main venue space that can accommodate up to 200 people seated or 400 standing.Sailing event Little Britain at The Sugar Store
All pontoon berths are serviced with 240v power and fresh water points. The pontoons and wide water access channels make life very straightforward for manoeuvring your vessel within the marina.
For training school groups, there are great discounts for crews and skippers at our onsite restaurant The Basque Kitchen (formerly Amabi)
! Strictly applicable to advanced bookings only made via the Marina. Full details on all Basque Kitchen discounts can be found here.
