Port Tack Charter

Using our Pioneering Sprit to Help Sailors Achieve their Dreams

Port Tack Charter operates in the UK, Europe and Australia.  The goal of the company is to support Olympic sailors and coaches by supplying high qualigh coach boats for charter at regattas an in training.  Port Tack Charter maintains a fleet of 20 RIBs that are set up to help the coaches of sailors. 

We are focussed on three things for our customers:

  • Reliability: We will do what we say we can do and deliver coach boats when we say we will deliver.
  • Sailor focussed: We aim to provide a product that satisfies the needs of the sailor above all others.
  • Safety: We will promote safe operation of coach boats and dighies and lead by example on the water.

The fleet consists of 20 RIBs.  16 fo the coach boats are 5.5 meters long with 50 HP Honda engines. The remaining 4 boats are 5.9m long with 60 HP Honda engines.

The home base from April to September is Weymouth, UK. Weymouth has grown to a hub of dinghy racing largely on the backs of the Team GBR sailing team and the Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy.   Port Tack Charter has developed a novel approach to transporting coach boats so that we can efficiently deploy the fleet across Europe.

In the 2012 Olympic quadrennial, the home base from October through December is Perth, Australia.  Perth is the location of the 2011 ISAF world championships and the first opportunity for teams to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics.
