About Us

Westview Sailing is an RYA recognised training centre in Chalfont St. Peter, Buckinghamshire, UK. Westview Sailing is run by Duncan Wells, RYA instructor, author of Stress Free Sailing – Single & Short Handed Techniques and features writer for Yachting Monthly.

We are now running the shore based courses over Zoom. Day Skipper at 8pm on a Monday and Yachtmaster at 8pm on a Wednesday. Contact us if you would like to join in.

Check out the online Tutorial Videos Click here handy study aids for the Day Skipper and Yachtmaster shore based courses.

These videos are also available from Udemy, where they can be downloaded to a device so you can have them with you at all times.

At Westview Sailing we run the Day Skipper shore based course over 7 weeks (one night a week) and one weekend and the Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster course over 8 weeks (one night a week) and one weekend. Running courses over several weeks allows enough time for the homework and a greater retention of the information than the shorter intensive courses. All Westview students are given access to the tutorial videos for the duration of their course.

We also run the short Range Certifiacte VHF/DSC radio course which we do as a one day course or as a three evening course.

Why not check out our Bookshelf section with recommended reading or Articles by Duncan Wells for Yachting Monthly and Sailing Today Magazine.

Have a look at the video to get an idea of the Westview style and difference.
