What's Running This Summer

We will be running:

  • Introduction to Dinghy Sailing
  • Paddleboarding Experience Day


Unfortunately Improves Sailing will not take place as the syllabus requires the sailors to use duel occupancy boats, of which social distancing cannot be maintained.

We will be teaching in smaller groups of five students to one instructor, and indoor time kept to a minimum. Showers will not be in use (unless emergencies) so we ask participants to shower at home of an evening. 

Wetsuits, helments and buoyancy aids will be issued where needed at the start of the course and will be in your care for the duration of the course. We will take these items back and disinfect the equipment at the end of the course. 

Adult Courses

We're recognised by British Canoeing and the Royal Yachting Association for the quality of our watersport tuition. Our experienced and qualified instructors really enjoy passing on their expertise to new and improving sailors and paddlers. We make our courses as accessible and fun as we possibly can, whilst covering all the techniques and tactics for you to excel in your chosen sport. We also provide all the equipment you'll need, so you won't have to go shopping first, and a car parking permit for the duration of your course.

  •  No prior experience or qualifications needed for most activities
  • Helmets, buoyancy aids and wetsuits provided
  • Every participant must complete an online consent form, or prior to the first day of the course or activity

Important information regarding participant medications

We kindly ask that any medication left in our care is clearly listed on the consent form, along with information on what it is for and when to be administered. 

Please also state clearly if medicines left at the centre must accompany the participant at all times (on land and water), or can be left at a central location within the centre. If the medication must stay with the participant at all times (on land and water), you must provide a dry pack for the medication.
