Torbay Tiller Girls was founded to get girls on the water to share our love of sailing in a fun and sociable way. Pretty much anyone can do it or give it a go, you don’t have to be super fit, any particular build or age to start. It’s a sport you can do for all of your life in any capacity.

You won’t find shouting on board and can do as much or as little as you want to. We predominately use Keel boats which have a lump of lead on the bottom to stop them capsizing. Our emphasis isn’t on formal teaching but a fun experience to build your confidence. Usually you will be sailing with an exclusively female group but we occasionally use male skippers who have been carefully vetted to share our ethos of welcoming and inclusive sailing.
