As a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) recognised training centre we are able to offer both Dinghy and Keelboat training for both beginners and improvers. Our RYA qualified instructor, Sam, has over 20 years of experience teaching in a variety of boats and has a wealth of local knowledge around Tor Bay.
Most courses are sailed in Sam’s own keelboat, Legacy, with a maximum of four trainees. Single-handed dinghies are also available with tuition provided from a safety boat. Legacy has been specially designed for training and she is kept in a pontoon so there is no need to enter the water to board.
If you want to try sailing out or wish to improve a specific technique we can offer shorter, tailored sessions; contact us to discuss your specific requirements.
