Watersports Activity Days and Royal Yachting courses for Schools and Groups

Children love our watersports activity days and RYA courses where they can enjoy the thrill and challenge of windsurfing and sailing. It is a wonderful way for them to become water confident and learn a new skill and, perhaps, eventually become watersports instructors themselves.  Stand Up Paddleboarding can be included as an activity for older children.

kids dinghy lessonThe course consists of four two hour sessions in windsurfing or sailing run over consecutive weeks, or to suit a schools timetable. These sessions can be held a.m. or p.m. At the end of the course children will be awarded Royal Yachting Association certificates in Start Sailing or Start Windsurfing. The normal cost for the RYA course for children is £120.00 so greatly reduced for school groups.


One hour after school Club in windsurfing or sailing – £10.00 per session

We appreciate that many schools are unable to fit a watersports activity into their curriculum during the school day so we will be running these sessions after school from 15.45 to 16.45. Eight one hour sessions of one activity would result in children gaining their Start Windsurfing or Sailing Royal Yachting Association certificate.

The way for children to progress in windsurfing and sailing after the school sessions

Once children have gained their RYA Stage 1 certificate in windsurfing or sailing they can join our Wednesday Windsurfing/Sailing Club during the school holidays. All kit/wetsuit is provided. This is a massively cost reduced two hour coaching session. We also have an RYA Team 15 Club held on Saturday afternoons. Children can go on to do their RYA Stage 2, 3 and 4 courses.
