Improve your sailing skills with us here at All-Aboard. After proving very popular last season, these sessions are aimed at novice/intermediate sailors aged 16 years and over, who have mastered the basics of sailing (RYA Adult Level 1 or above) and would like time on the water to practise and improve.  Our fully qualified, experienced instructors will support you, supporting you to develop your skills and teaching you new techniques.

Please note that this is not a formal RYA ‘Learn to sail’ course but is based upon and uses RYA methods and techniques.

These weekly sessions are bookable through our website from Easter through to October.  *Please note: From May 1st – September 1st these sessions will run at the slightly later time of 7pm-9:30pm

During the winter months (November to March) these sessions will run as a ‘Adult Winter Sailing Club’ when weather conditions permit. To take part in these sessions you need to have completed a previous sailing course or session with us. These sessions will be offered and booked through a WhatsApp group managed by our Activities Manger.
