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.  There are no entry requirements. After completing this course you will be able to sail in light winds under supervision.

Cost £60 members, £120 non-members. Under 18 members £45, non-members £90.

RYA Level 2. This follows on from the L1 course and also takes place over 3 days. You need to have completed an RYA L1 course or be able to sail a triangular course unaided. After completing this course you will be able to rig, launch/recover a boat, carry out basick manouvers and be able sail in good conditions.
