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.


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 £80 members, £140 non-members. Under 18 members £50, non-members £100.


Next course is 11,18, and 25 Sept. All three days.

For those that can already sail, this 2-day course does what it says on the tin! Learn about start procedures, flags and the basics of the rules-of-racing.

Course Dates 1,2, and 3 can be L1, L2 or any Youth sailing course depending upon demand. It is intended that Course Three will be a concurrent L1 and L2 course.

Please bear in mind that sailing is dependent on the weather, so we sometime have to re-schedule course dates.


Other dinghy courses can be arranged subject to demand.
