Frequently Asked Questions

This course is open to adults (ages 16+) who are eager to take their sailing skills to the next level, having completed RYA Stages 1 and 2 or equivalent.

With the RYA Day Sailing qualification, you’ll have the skills and knowledge to confidently plan, navigate, and enjoy day sails in a dinghy. Whether you want to explore local waters or venture further afield, this certification equips you with the expertise to make informed decisions and handle various conditions. It’s a valuable step towards becoming a self-sufficient sailor and opens up opportunities for exciting sailing adventures.

Unfortunately not. Participants should bring their own lunch and snacks.

Absolutely! You can view and book our full range of courses at the bottom of this page.

Buoyancy aids and waterproofs are provided. You will, however, need plenty of old clothes – as sailing can be a damp sport! Bring shorts and tee shirts for warmer days and tracksuit bottoms and sweatshirts for colder days. A pair of old trainers or wetsuit shoes is also recommended. We can provide a more detailed kit list upon booking, too.

Our centre is fully equipped with first aid boxes located in the residential accommodation and sailing centre offices. All our main safety boats carry a first aid kit and a radio. All our instructors hold a valid First Aid certificate and attend a health and safety induction when joining the company.

We guarantee to give you the training and do our very best to help you pass the training and assessments. Most of the certificates depend on you demonstrating your competence, so we can’t give you a firm guarantee that you will pass. However, if the worst comes to the worst, you’ll leave us with an action plan to complete.

How it works: 

  1. Make a booking.
  2. The centre will accept your booking, usually within an hour or two.
  3. Pay for the booking to confirm it.

If you have specific questions, please put them in the comments section, and the centre will answer before you pay.
