Learn to Sail

We provide Adult and Junior RYA Level 1 and 2 courses, which should enable you to be able to sail a dinghy in light winds.  In order to help your skills develop we run a series of ‘Improver Days’ with instructors on hand, as well as knowledgeable club members who are keen to pass on their skills and knowledge.


You can find dates and up to date information as well as how to book through our booking system, on the link here:
