Start sailing for Adults

A course for Adults and Teenagers to introduce the basics of sailing.


The overall course is aimed at Adults and Teenagers who have had a little or no experience of Dinghy Sailing and takes them to standard where by they should be able to take out a dinghy, and sail in most directions in good weather conditions. The course is also good for those who have had informal teaching or need a refresher.

We will have an option to complete the course in both Crewed boats (Wayfarers) and Singlehanders (Picos).
