Learn to Sail

Welcome – you’ve made the right choice, sailing is just so much fun!

There are three main ways of getting going with learning to sail:

  • Signing up for a sailing course in RYA certified training centre

  • Join a sailing club and do the course under an RYA certified training officer

  • Learn with some pals in their boat

In this section, we would like to list as many sailing clubs who provide training and are open for new members, and as many training centres as possible, just to give you the choice.

We will do our best to keep this list updated, however if you’re club/training centre is not listed below, please let us know. There’s no cost involved. We just want to get bums in boats!
