Adult Sailing Courses

As a recognised RYA Training Centre we are fully set up for teaching dinghy sailing. We have a selection of both single and double handed boats which we use for teaching and training.

After participating in one of our courses, you can continue through our adult Supervised Sailing Sessions for recreational sailing. We also signpost people to the Welsh Harp Sailing Club or Wembley Sailing Club on the Welsh Harp for those who are interested in joining a club or racing. We are an RYA Sailability Centre and can offer access to the water for people with disabilities.
