RYA Keelboat Sailing

The school offers a wide range of courses following the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) modules for each level of ability, covering sail and motor techniques, with the basic principles being similar to dinghy sailing, but the experience being on our small yacht, Goldie, a 20 ft Oyster Catcher. These courses can be tailor made to suit your own individual needs. Our Instructor/student ratio is 1:4, which ensures a fun and safe learning environment. Your time with us will be enjoyable as well as constructive.


Our courses follow the same RYA syllabus for dinghy sailing, and provide an excellent platform for those who prefer the relative comfort, stability and versatility that you get with our Oyster Catcher 20 Keelboat.


The RYA certified level 2 course is very popular for pre flotilla training, with many Mediterranean based flotilla charter companies now accepting this as the minimum qualifications needed for some yacht flotilla holidays.
