Getting Started

For most people the thought of all of the equipment and where to get a boat from can be a little overwhelming. Chelmarsh can, should you want, hire you a boat for the day. There are willing and supportive members on hand to help you if you require.  Details of suppliers of such things as dry suits and other safety equipment can be easily provided by the club.

We also have a small selection of equipment that can be borrowed, such as buoyancy aids and some smaller wet suits.

Learn to Sail

Learn the basics and by the end of the course you should be able to sail a dinghy in light winds and gain an Adult RYA Levels 1 & 2 or an RYA Young Sailors Scheme, Stages 1 & 2 qualification.  You can even sign up whilst on the Taster Day!


Youths £50, Adult £120

Both packages include 4 day course, 4 afternoons improver sessions, certificates and two months membership. Other packages are available if you would like to explore the idea of sailing, including family memberships, 14 month and 16 month memberships.

Improver Days

This is your chance to get some free tips from our experienced sailors. There will be two sailors in our two safety boats giving advice and encouragement. The format will depend on the number of boats and the weather. No need to book, just turn up. The eight sessions will start at noon and finish at 17:00. It is hoped to have a short interval during the afternoon.
