We aim to get everyone out on the water and enjoy their first time sailing. These are open to everyone aged 16+, with plenty of opportunities to get in control of their boats while having a great time. We will be working towards RYA Level 1 of the adult sailing scheme, which is a first step to a fulfilling lifetime sailing.
