RYA Dinghy Sailing under 16 Courses

We offer a range of RYA courses and tuition in dinghy sailing, for ages from 8 upwards. These courses are offered between April and September each year. In order to take part in these courses you will need to have membership. At the same time you may want to consider the benefits of full membership.

             Tuition boats

All of our courses are taught by RYA qualified instructors in groups with a maximum ratio of 6 students to each instructor. Teaching takes place on the water and in the classroom and we move between the two depending on the group, the weather conditions and the requirements of the curriculum.
