RYA Level 1 Sailing

We run our Beginners Courses between April and October. 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. These courses are an excellent opportunity to get out on the water and get lots of sailing while having a great time and gaining a valuable qualification. If you are looking for an alternative, we also run a Tuesday Evening Beginners Group, which has one start date this year June 22nd. 

Our team are on hand to support you.
