Jalapeno in action – Learn to sail Day Skipper

Learn to sail Day Skipper this year! Jalapeno has been out working this week, delivering sail training from Chichester harbour. Congratulations to Olivia and Michael, two newly qualified RYA Day Skippers, who got to put Jalapeno through her paces, under the guidance of instructor Jason Ralph.

There was a good variety of conditions, with a gusty day being a good chance to experience more challenging conditions. The five day course took them all over the Solent, to the Beaulieu river, a night entrance into the River Hamble, Cowes on the Isle of Wight and into Portsmouth harbour.
