For those who are new to sailing or who have already learnt to sail but feel they need to brush up on their skills before taking to the water on their own again. Learn to sail in either a double handed boat such as a Laser 2000, Wayfarer or Leader with the instructor on board , or single handed boats such as Pico’s, Topper's or Topaz's. An excellent opportunity to get afloat and build confidence or to work through the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) levels to learn and improve your skills. For those with limited mobility the Access Dinghies can be used.
