Plymouth Sailing School has reached an agreement with SeaRegs Training to handover the helm of the school from October 2018.

Plymouth Sailing School was set up in 1957 and is one of the UK’s longest established sea schools. It runs RYA Sail Training courses from beginner to professional Yachtmaster and Instructor. Current school Principal, Richard Brown, who has helmed the school for the last 25 years said, ‘I’m pleased to see the school carry on in the safe hands of SeaRegs and located just half a mile downstream at Turnchapel Wharf. The sale of the school leaves me time to go cruising on my new barge, that is now I have time to finish building it…’

Simon and Vicky Jinks of SeaRegs Training are delighted to take over the watch. Simon said, ‘Richard and I have worked together for years and it is a privilege to be taking the over the helm especially as both companies share the same values and have a reputation for safety conscious fun and professionalism.’ Simon continued ‘whilst the final details are still being worked out, our intention is for SeaRegs Training and Plymouth Sailing School to keep their own identities, but with one centre for bookings, enquires and classrooms at our new purpose built Plymouth training centre’.

SeaRegs were looking at creating greater pathways into maritime training and incorporating with Plymouth Sailing School will help create a full picture of both leisure and commercial training in the South West.
