Most weeks of the year we have more than one course happening at a time. We normally allocate instructors and yachts to specific courses about 7-10 days in advance of the course start date, based on the number of participants in each course and yacht availability.
The monohulls we use for training are 3 or 4 cabin yachts made by Beneteau, Bavaria or Jeanneau, ranging in size from 41 to 50 feet. The catamarans are also 3 or 4 cabin yachts, ranging in size from 38 to 46 feet, made by Lagoon, Fountaine-Pajot or Bali.
On a week-long training course, one cabin is normally reserved for the instructor, so up to three cabins are available for participants. In a 4 cabin yacht, there would be a maximum of 6 students, if each available cabin was occupied by a couple. More typically, however, there could be one or two couples, and one or two single participants. In sum, a typical course will generally have 3-5 participants.
