- We’re an active sailing & boating (sports) club in the North Coast area.

Sailing is a sport that can be enjoyed socially or competitively.
Competitive sailing requires muscle strength, endurance/agility, physical fitness, mental wellness, relaxation, concentration, decision-making and communication.
Many people think sailing is expensive and for only the “elite”. It doesn’t have to be. Through club courses, RYA training can cost as little as £40 per day for a 5 day summer course (or £30 per day for members), including boat hire. Once you grasp the basics, members can use club dinghies at local sailing events.
Sailing isn’t only an exciting experience, it offers a lot of positive benefits to young people’s mental and physical health, decision making and confidence. Its a skill for life.
Learning to sail:
Throughout the summer months, we run a range of training programmes for different ages and abilities, as part of the RYA training pathway. These training programmes provide the quickest, easiest & safest way to learn to sail.
The most popular programmes are the ‘summer school’ courses, which run from 9.30 to 4.30, for 5 days (Monday to Friday)
On-line Booking in advance is essential for all courses, as numbers are strictly limited.
