Our weekly sailing clubs are all about getting out on the water, socialising and having fun, whilst working towards the next youth RYA stage. 

You don’t have to commit week in, week out. To join, you buy a credit block and can book as and when you're able to attend. Credits are available in blocks of 5 (£60) or 10 (£100). One credit is used per session. 

To join our sailing club, you must already have a Stage One sailing qualification. If you don't have this, you can contact us to book on to a Stage One course. 

The Roseland Youth Sailing Trust (RYST) are an organisation we work closely with through our school sailing programme, enabling children to get out on the water and learn to sail. They are able to partly or fully fund places on the club. Get in touch with our team to find out more information.
