The sailing club runs a Sailing School which is RYA approved. Most courses are limited to club members though prospective members can take a Taster session - see below. The Sailing School is staffed by members who volunteer their time to train other members in all aspects of sailing. 

The largest group using the sailing school are the cadets who have two training weekends in the spring and a cadet week of training and other activities in the summer holidays. For the youngsters progressing into racing we have a Volvo Squad where invited cadets are coached in racing techniques.  The squad meets four times a year.

Non members can take advantage of our taster sessions where an instructor will take you out for an hour or so to see if you enjoy the experience of sailing and wish to take it further.    Contact Nigel Willsher for more details or to book a taster session at

The sailing school manager is Sarah Bakewell who may be contacted at

We are offering  familiarisation courses to help you get to know the clubs waters, racing starts and marks, and some of the things to watch out for.

Details on the Courses and Fees can be downloaded here.
