Dinghy Sailing Courses

We offer a number of RYA accredited courses from the basic Level 1 sailing course for complete beginners through to the start racing course. Our courses are suitable for both adults and junior sailors (8 & upwards), with juniors being able to work through the RYA DInghy Youth scheme. Courses are normally run on Saturdays from May through to October, and typically consist of 2-3 hours sailing on each day plus classroom/theory. We aim to run them on consecutive Saturdays but this isn't always possible because of tides or weather.

RYA Level 1. This course is run over 3 days and is aimed at complete beginners. After completing this course you will be able to sail in light winds under supervision.

RYA Level 2. This follows on from the L1 course and also takes place over 3 days. After completing this course you will be able to rig, launch/recover a boat and be able sail in good conditions.
