RYA level 1 & 2 sailing courses

The Club runs RYA dinghy levels 1 and 2 and Seamanship courses. 

The Level 1 dinghy sailing course is the introductory level in the adult sailing scheme. The course is designed to give the complete novice the basic skills and knowledge needed to get afloat and start enjoying this wonderful sport. Often this course is run alongside a level 2 course.

The Level 2 sailing course is designed to progress your sailing skills further, participants will be taught all they need to know in order to get afloat in light to moderate winds without need for assistance. This course once completed could be considered your drivers licence for dinghy sailing. It is nationally recognised as a bench mark qualification.

The seamanship course follows the Level 2 course and builds on the skills already learnt.

The Club runs both the RYA Level 2 National Powerboat Course and also the RYA Powerboat course. These courses are scheduled around our our members needs but non members can also join where numbers allow. 

This course is designed to provide the skills and background knowledge needed by the competent powerboat driver and is the basis of the International Certificate of Competence. 


The course teaches you how to drive the craft responsibly but above all safely and still having maximum enjoyment and this qualification is usually sufficient to hire a boat.


The Safety Boat Course focusses on the skills needed to safety rescue or support other water users and is particularly useful to Club members who are scheduled to be on the safety boat rota.
