Adult Beginners

Adult Beginners Sailing Course

Learn the basic skills of dinghy sailing

A weekend or 4 evening course starting with the absolute basics. No previous experience necessary. Working towards RYA Level 1. This course is generally run mostly or entirely in our larger dinghies capable of carrying up to three students. There will be an instructor in the boat with you, at least until you’ve got the hang of the basics. The course will cover the basic skills required to get a dinghy out on the water and join in a sailing session, such as Monday Mayhem.

Course Requirements

No prior sailing experience necessary. You must be happy to be in the water wearing a buoyancy aid, but do not need to be able to swim. If you’re unsure if this is the right course for you then please contact us.
