which type of boating is RIGHT for you?
Cruising takes place on yachts, where crew numbers range from 4-8+ people. Our cruising yachts are both around 44ft long, which is perfect for heading further afield and overnight stays. Cruising is generally relaxed and rather social, whereas the racing will test your teamwork skills!
Learning to sail a dinghy will teach you everything about sailing, as you are in full control of your boat! It’s a very accessible way of getting into sailing, as you can head out by yourself after just a couple of courses.
Cruising courses guide you down the perfect path into bigger boat sailing, and after a few courses you will be able to skipper and charter your own yacht. This route can take you comfortably into offshore sailing and racing.
A valuable asset to any sailing centre, powerboat courses train you to drive a powerboat safely. The primary use is for support on training and racing, although the qualification is recognised around the world, allowing you to rent powerboats.
For those wanting a bigger adrenaline rush on the water, wingfoiling is for you. It’s (relatively) inexpensive and very space efficient compared to similar sports, so a great way to get into the boarding side of the sailing world.
Background knowledge is key to being a successful sailor, and the theory courses are designed to support your progression within your chosen discipline. These courses also cover safety aspects to help you deal with incidents on the water.
