Adult Courses
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.
Adults (Age 14+)

Adult beginner courses are normally taught in wayfarers although there may be opportunities to try other boats such as singlehanders such as the feva or faster boats such as the laser 2000.

Booking Conditions


A 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.
