We run RYA Courses for adults and for children.

We do an introduction to sailing which is a 1 day course and is the same as the 1st day of a level 1 course.

The weekend courses are 2 days and the weekday courses are generally 4 day courses but can be split into two, 2 day courses.

RYA Level 1 Adults is 2 days and will teach you the basics of dinghy sailing. RYA level 2 is an additional 2 days and will give you the confidence to go sailing on your own in moderate winds.

We generally take children from the age of 8 upwards.
