About Us

We are a small, friendly company made up of keen sailors who believe that sailing is mostly about pleasure.

Des Erridge is the main skipper and has years of experience sailing in the Solent and beyond. His easy going nature makes him an ideal teacher for all levels of ability, so you can enjoy your sail whilst learning all the important points.

The main yacht we use is a Feeling 1100, which is a 37 foot long Bermuda Sloop with 3 separate cabins as well as the main below deck area.

We also have access to a number of other registered yachts if your requirements exceed this.

We specialise in courses for first time sailors and those who want to improve their skills in sailing with more safety and confidence.

We are based at Gunwharf Quays allowing easy access to facilities as well as the large amount of shops, bars, restaurants and clubs.

All our instructors are RYA qualified and provide expert tuition in a friendly, fun and relaxed manner.

Our boats are up-to-date, spacious and clean with all necessary safety equipment and a stocked galley.

The Happy Dolphin School of Sailing proudly support the British Marine Federation and the Royal Yachting Association of the Green Blue initiative.
