We offer the following courses:


We run only Two sailing courses per year
Our first SAILING course will be Easter 2020 (cancelled due to Covid-19 lockdown)
Our second SAILING course will be Summer 2020 (running with restrictions)

Note that because of current restrictions there will be small groups doing 2 Day courses on this occasion. Prices have been adjusted accordingly.
Price for members is £55
Price for non members £95 includes 3 months club membership, use of buoyancy aid, certificate and log book.
Course booking priority is given to members.
