Sailing schools

Safety is paramount when afloat and we recommend getting formal training both in theory and practice at an RYA certified training centre. The RYA offer an excellent standard of training. Many of our members have undertaken theory courses at night-school in Bristol and practical courses around the country. These courses introduce you to the theory of navigation and safe sailing and lead on through various levels of practical seamanship at a crew and skipper level. Some of the training establishments we have used are listed below:
