2 Day RYA Start Yachting Course

What we say…

Not sure if sailing is for you? Start here! Start Yachting is a lovely course with the aim of letting you feel comfortable on the boat and try some of the fundamental skills associated with sailing. You’ll get the feel of steering under power, learn how to raise the sails, and experience the wonderful moment when the engine is turned off and the wind takes over. There’s also a look at key safety issues and how to recover a person from the water. Staying on board for two days gives you a sense of yachting life without being overwhelming.
