About

who we are

Welcome to Fastack South Solent Sailing School

Fastack South is an RYA accredited sailing school based in the Solent on England’s South Coast. Our sister school, Fastack Sailing is based on the Humber in North East England.

We offer a full range of shorebased and practical RYA accredited sailing courses as well as offshore racing, holiday flotilla training, milebuilders and skippered charters. For experienced sailors we also offer RYA accredited instructor training.

Our aim is to give a personal service, listening to your questions and comments and doing our best to make your sailing course or charter as good as it can possibly be.

Our yachts are all modern with at least 3 cabins and wheel steering so you will be learning to sail on the same kind of yachts that are usually available for charter both in the UK and abroad.
