Sailing courses

Taster Sessions

This is a chance for you to experience the joys of sailing and the beauty of Ullswater in the capable hands of one of our qualified instructors. We have a range of boats to choose from to suit all ages (8yrs +) and the size of your party. It’s a great way of deciding whether sailing is right for you before undertaking one of our longer courses. Tasters are available every day of the week but require pre-booking.

Introduction to Sailing RYA Level 1

The first step, these two days provides a good introduction, getting you on the water, understanding boat handling techniques and safely enjoying the thrills of sailing.

The Next Step RYA Level 2

These two days take you to a level where you can sail competently and safely on your own in reasonable weather conditions.

RYA 5 Day Courses

Combining both Levels 1 & 2 takes you from complete novice to having a basic knowledge of sailing and safety on the water in moderate conditions.
