We are an accredited RYA Training Centre and can run courses to all RYA Dinghy Syllabus Levels.

We have a highly committed team of 20 instructors who are continually upgrading their qualifications.

The club is fortunate to have a fleet of training dinghies boats, ranging from Optimists through, Toppers , RS Fevas, and Wayfarers (the latest design) as well as a Wayfarer World. We also have a Laser 2000, Kestrel 2000, Laser 2 Regattas and a 420 for the more advanced courses

All Wayfarers are fitted with centre mainsheets.RYA-Training-Centre-logo

In addition, for those new members without their own dinghies, the completion of a Level 1/2 course includes free sessions in the Club boats.

We also run RYA Powerboat Courses (PB2 and Safety Boat)
