Adult Training

We offer adult beginner sailing training on a Wednesday evening April to October.

There's no expected level of ability, we will teach you to sail in the sheltered waters next to the club.

To begin, a RYA qualified instructor will be in the boat with you. As you get more confident the instructor will be in another boat alongside you. Your tutor will be beside you guiding you through every step and help you build your confidence on the water.

Your club tutor will soon have you ready to go out on your own, either to take part in our exciting and varied racing season, or just relaxing confidently out on the waves.

This training is run under our status as an RYA Training Centre. All our training and safety boat cover is provided by qualified volunteers.

Contact the Office to sign up.
