RYA Training Courses

These RYA courses take place over 4 days, covering the Stages 1 and 2 syllabus. They are open to members and non-members alike.
Typically 6-12 juniors per course are taught in the club optimists and toppers – single handed boats that have proved popular with 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 basics 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 suitably qualified sailors. Our hire policy asks that juniors have a Stage 3 qualification to hire the RS Tera or RS Feva and a Stage 2 qualification for Optibats and Toppers.

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
