A short film about learning to sail and complete the RYA Competent Crew Course with Matthew from Sailing Ventures. A Fantastic Sport that every one can try even if you have health challenges like MS.


Our fabulous crewman 'Nigel' has managed to piece together a short movie of our Fastnet 2015 experience on Flame. Nearly 4 hours of Gopro footage cut down to 3:50! Although this is not tuition you'll see the boat, the comradery and the enjoyment that the crew had during this epic and challenging race. Enjoy
