RYA Start Sailing
Whether you would like to figure out whether sailing floats your boat, or whether you would like to use this course as a stepping stone into the world of sailing, this basic course is an ideal starting point for the absolute beginner.
You’ll get to spend two consecutive days aboard our school boat, getting used to the ‘how’, the ‘why’ of sailing. Living on board with other students will give you a realistic idea of what it is really like to spend any amount of time on board a busy vessel under sail and power
