Training Courses

Some sucessful training has happened but we have in no way satisfied demand and we have a long waiting list. So for the moment we have no open courses scheduled. We are looking to do something in the autumn.

 

Junior couses follow the RYA youth sylabus which can be seen HERE

Please contact us if interested in the above dates or if you would like other dates to suit you.

We are looking at other options throughout the summer holidays (depending on Covid Rules) such as sailing taster days. Please send any expressions of interest to the email address below. 

Also Contact us if you want to book powerboat training or safety boat training.
