Training (Adult Dinghy)

As a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Training Centre we are pleased to be able to offer a variety of training courses for all ages and experiences whether new to sailing or brushing up/improving existing skills and for members and non-members.

Adult- New to Sailing
We offer courses with a variety of formats to suit the differing needs of people’s diaries; each course has a total of 12 hours’ tuition, a maximum of six people to an instructor and are available to non-members. These cover the basics of rigging a boat, getting out on the water, sailing a triangular course and getting back into shore. Everything required to be able to sail a boat independently and leads to an RYA Level 1 qualification. The cost includes the RYA books you need to get started. All equipment is provided including wetsuits, buoyancy aids, boats etc. The only thing you need is an old pair of shoes such as trainers that can get wet (no flip-flops).
