The sport of windsurfing attracts people of all ages and from all walks of life. With the right instruction, the right equipment and regular time on the water, your windsurfing will progress quickly.
As a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Recognised Training Centre, Priory Sailing Club is 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 Windsurfing
The Start Windsurfing course is run over two days with a maximum of six people to an instructor and is available to non-members. The course is a gentle introduction to the sport, teaching you the basics of windsurfing and covers the basics of rigging a board, getting out on the water and sailing where you want to go, turning around and getting back to shore, indeed everything required to be able to sail a board independently, and leads to an RYA Start Windsurfing qualification. The cost includes the RYA books you need to get started. All equipment is provided including a wetsuit and buoyancy aid, the only thing you need is an old pair of shoes, such as trainers, that can get wet (no flip-flops please!).
The planned course dates for 2021 are listed below, at this stage they are ‘pandemic permitting’, but we are optimistic that we will be able to run them!
