Additional Training

As well as RYA courses, we offer a range of ongoing training such as one-on-one coaching, Women on the Water, informal evening training, class-specific training, youth activities, race coaching and race officer training.

For groups such as schools and youth organisations we can offer taster sessions leading to an RYA taster certificate. Instructors will take youngsters afloat to see if they enjoy being on the water and show them the very basics of sailing. Likewise, if you're an adult who wants to see if sailing is for you, we can offer a trial sail in a club boat with an instructor who can show you the ropes!
