The club is an RYA Training Centre and runs internationally recognised courses throughout the year. The club places a great emphasis on tuition.  The courses we offer cover all abilities, from beginner sailing to advanced courses. Even without committing yourself to a course there are always experienced sailors on hand who will be happy to give you helpful advice on tuning and sailing your boat.
