Sailing is one of our most popular sports, from relaxed family cruisers, to the challenge of mastering the dinghies and catamarans, there really is something for everyone.

There is a lot to learn in a sailing boat so before you can take one out yourself you require a little more instruction than other activities.

The Challenger trimaran is the boat of choice for the RYA Sailability for which we have been recognised since 2005 as somewhere for specialising in accessible sailing, you can hire or take instruction. Access is easy from our specially adapted jetty.

Hire available daily from 9:00 - 5:00
March - November

In order to hire boats customers will be asked if they can "Rig it, Reef it and Right it!" If you don’t know what this means then the you must take some lessons first.

Private lessons

Private lessons can be taken in any one of our different dinghies and keel boats.
Weather permitting, we will encourage you to use our single handers so everyone has a boat to themselves. If there is a family or a nervous student our keelboats offer a stable platform and a gentle introduction to the magical world of water based wind power.

Group lessons

Learn with other like minded fun seekers and have a blast doing so. Adults and kids are split into to groups wherever possible allowing the instructors to stop any family feuds. Group lessons are great value and a chance to enjoy learning with new friends.


Our two day course will get you an RYA level 1 certificate and give you the confidence to practice a little more yourself.
The five day course brings you up to level 2, which is recognised internationally as the certificate required for hiring boats anywhere in the world.
