Improver Sailing and Race Coaching Sessions

For Club members who have completed their RYA level 2, we offer Improver Sailing Sessions on most Saturday’s at 1.30pm.

These are informal sailing sessions giving members the opportunity to practice the skills learnt on their RYA Level 2 Course, led by experienced Club sailors who volunteer their time and skills to guide and encourage the less experienced sailor. Safety boat cover is available and Club Boats may be used free of charge.

These sessions are also open to any club member who wants to sail their boat knowing that safety cover is available.

Booking is not essential, but helps us know who is coming and enables you to indicate which Club Boat you would like to borrow.

For more information and bookings >>

Race Coaching is primarily aimed at Youth Sailors (members and affiliated members) who are able to sail a course.

Our experienced Race Coach will help you to improve your race skills.

You may use your own boat, or borrow a HSC or LDSA Topper.

Booking for these sessions is essential as the Race Coach will not attend if there are no bookings.
