The club offers a variety of sailing courses for adult, junior, and prospective members, whether newcomers to the sport with no previous experience, or those wishing to improve their performance after learning the basics.



The training team can offer Sailing Taster Sessions on request for groups or individuals. There will be a fee for these sessions to cover
instructor(s) costs. Fees for group sessions will be charged at £50 per person, and fees for individual 1-1 sessions will be provided on request. These sessions can be hosted using your own boat or using a boat from our training fleet.



Race Coaching can be provided for both adult and junior members who wish to learn the fundamentals needed to get started in club racing.

Courses will be organised depending on interest. Please contact a member of the Training Committee if you are interested. A basic training fee may be required to help cover costs.



We will be running a number of courses which will focus on all sailing abilities over specific training weekends. These are run over two consecutive Saturdays between 09:00 – 17.00.
