We are an accredited RYA Training organisation and run some RYA courses and issue certificates. Using Access dinghies at Alton Water and the Hawk and Drascombe at Woolverstone, we are able to deliver the full syllabus for the Dinghy Level One and Two courses minus the capsize.
At Woolverstone, on the River Orwell, we sail from the 1st of May until the end of September every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Using a Hawk 20 and a Drascombe Longboat we take sailors out on the water. They usually come in groups and are generally those who will not learn to sail solo. Carers come sailing with the group.
At Alton Water, which is a still water reservoir, there is an open session (just turn up) every Monday morning (10am – 12pm) of the year, except Christmas week and Bank Holidays. From May until the penultimate week in September, there is an open youth session every Thursday evening after school.
