Never tried sailing or looking to improve?
We offer junior beginner sailing training on a Wednesday evening April to September.
Adult beginner training in the form of RYA level 1&2 courses are arranged by our sailing professional . These lead onto our 7 week adult improver courses.
The objective of these courses is to get you to the stage where you are confident to take a boat out and join our social or racing programs.
You can use your boat or we will provide a Club boat for you to improve in.
Junior sailors progress on to further sailing and race coaching on a Wednesday evening.
This training is run under our status as an RYA Training Centre.
All our training and safety boat cover is provided by qualified volunteers.
You can hire Hartley 15’s, Fusions and stand up paddleboards. Boats For Hire
