TRAINING COURSES FOR SAILING

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.

IMPROVING YOUR SAILING

For those members who have attended a training course, to improve your skills we are normally able to lend you club owned boats to practice in, for your first year. These boats may only be used with the prior knowledge of a member of the training committee, and will only be available if not being used for training purposes. 

To attend all of the above courses you must be at least 8 years old and be able to swim 50 metres in light clothing. All RYA courses are chargeable, contact the Training Secretary for further information.
