RYA Training Courses

These RYA courses take place over 4 days, covering the Start Sailing Stages 1 and 2 syllabus. They are open to members and non-members alike.
Typically 12 juniors per course are taught in the club optimists and toppers – single handed boats that have proved popular for junior sailors. Wetsuits, buoyancy aids and spray tops are provided for the duration of the course.

The courses are great fun and once you have learnt the basis you can join lots of other Junior/Youth specific events where you can continue to improve your skills.

We have a high number of club boats and are able to offer both daily and annual boat hire for newly qualified sailors. Therefore there is no need to rush out and buy a boat to continue sailing.

Our Junior courses are aimed at teaching 8 to 16 year olds to sail. Those aged 16 and over are welcome to join the adult courses
