Aberdeenshire Sailing Trust
Many of our courses follow an RYA syllabus. In order to gain the certificate students need to complete the syllabus.
If for any reason (e.g. lack of wind) this appears unlikely, students will be warned about this during the course. A certain amount
of water confidence is important when taking part in sailing or indeed any other watersport. Therefore we require that
all participants should be confident in the water wearing a buoyancy aid / lifejacket.
course will not run if there are not enough applicants on it to make it financially viable. We aim to give as much warning
as possible in these circumstances. We reserve the right to cancel a course due to lack of bookings or other circumstances. In this instance, a full refund will be given. No refunds will be given for an individual failing to complete a course. In the event of you requiring a cancellation, we will do our utmost to sell your place again and if successful, a full refund will
be given. Otherwise, a 50% refund will be given for cancellations with more than 21 days notice from the start date of
the course. If less than 21 days from the start date, no refund will be given.
Courses and taster sessions from ages 8-16 for all levels of sailor.
Courses for those from age 14+ for beginners right through to advanced sailors.
We offer boat hire for sailing development. This needs to be arranged in advance so we have
a rescue boat on the water and an instructor to support the session.
We offer one on one sessions for those wanting a taster session or to work their way through the RYA schemes
but at times to suit.

We offer sailing for groups of children, young people or adults, including school groups.
