RYA Sailing Courses Youth (8-15) and Adult (16+)

Learning to sail is rewarding and exciting. We operate the RYA Sailing Scheme throughout the year, courses last for 2 days and promote a safe and fun learning environment. The beginner courses cost £155 per person and take you through the basics of dinghy sailing, getting you to a standard where you are able to enjoy the freedom of sailing. 

Once you have completed adult level 2 / youth stage 2 you can come and hire one of our sailing dinghies and enjoy the water at your leisure.

For those who wish to advance further, we can also offer more advanced levels of the RYA sailing scheme. Please speak to the Nene Outdoors team for guidance. 

For further progression you can hire our equipment when you choose to or you may like to join the Lakeside Sailing Club.
