We are a small independent Sailing School; situated within Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre, near Marlow in Buckinghamshire. Established in 1991 we are a Royal Yachting Association recognised teaching establishment. We specialize in small group beginners dinghy sailing training for both children and adults
Dinghy sailing courses take place mainly during main school holiday periods, on the River Thames and follow the RYA Dinghy Sailing Scheme for both adults and juniors. We specialize in small group beginners dinghy training using a range of dinghies supported by fast safety boats. The highest standards of supervision, safety equipment, buoyancy jackets and first aid facilities are provided. Our instructor to student ratio is one to six enabling maximum attention to each student's progress. We offer courses for RYA Youth Sailing Scheme from Stage 1 to Stage 4 and RYA National Sailing Scheme (adults) from Levels 1 to 3, RYA Dinghy Start Racing and RYA Dinghy Seamanship Skills are also available. We can also offer non-certificated courses and 'taster sessions' if you require something specialized to your needs.
Students do not need to purchase specialist clothing for dinghy sailing courses, all that is needed is a windproof jacket, soft soled shoes, a change of clothes and a towel. All students are allotted their own boat, buoyancy jackets are provided and all dinghy sailing courses are supported by a fast safety boat. Although we specialize in beginner's training many of our clients return each season to improve their dinghy sailing techniques.
Should our range of courses not cater for your needs or the thought of learning in small groups not appeal, training can be provided on a more personal basis using both single handed and double handed boats by arrangement.
