Sail Training Returns

Sail Training Returns

After a long wait the club is happy to be returning to sail training. Youth training has been underway for some time now, but RYA courses and adult training will now also be restarting.

Adult Introduction to Racing / Improvers Training

Run over a selection of Saturdays, this training will be open to all members of the club. The main aims will include getting back out on the water and familiar with basic racing so that you’re ready to go with club racing.

You can attend as many of these Saturday sessions as you would like. There will be 12 places on each initially, and 2 RYA qualified instructors taking the group.


  • Saturday 8th May 2021 Cancelled due to poor forecast
  • Saturday 15th May 2021

Cost: £15

If these first 2 courses are successful, there will be further dates throughout the summer.

RYA Courses

From the start of June, we will be running RYA sailing courses over a selection of weekdays and weekends. These courses are suitable for those with no previous sailing experience. At the end of a course, you will receive an RYA qualification which is the basis for all further sailing.


RYA Level 1-2

  • 12th-13th & 19th-20th June 2021
  • 3rd-4th & 10th-11th July 2021
  • 26th-29th July
  • 2nd-5th August
  • 16th-19th August


RYA Stage 1-2 and RYA Stage 3

  • 26th-29th July
  • 2nd-5th August
  • 9th-12th August
  • 16th-19th August
  • 23rd-26th August

The cost of each of these 4 day courses is £300 for non members and £250 for members. This covers the use of equipment and training, as well as the qualification at the end of the course.

We hope to add additional dates in the near future.

      Hi Kate, that’s great. For a 15 year old you have 2 choices. Officially at 15 you would go on the RYA Stage 1-2, however often older teenagers prefer to go on the adult course (RYA Level 1-2) which covers more ground in the same time frame. Both courses are available on the week you’re interested in.

      Hi Giovanni, great to hear that you’re interested. The course usually starts at 9:30am and normally finishes around 5pm each day.
