RYA Training at Tamworth Sailing Club

Level 2 students sailing in light windsWe are proud to be an RYA Training Centre offering a range of training courses for adults and juniors. No previous sailing experience is necessary as both the RYA Level 1 Start Sailing (adult) and RYA Stage 1 (youth) courses are designed to introduce sailing in a safe, enjoyable and informative way.

RYA Level 2 Basic Skills (adult) and RYA Stages 2, 3, 4 (youth) build on the introduction and soon you will be sailing confidently on your own.

When you are ready to enhance your skills further, usually in your second season (or later if you prefer), we run the RYA Seamanship Skills and RYA Start Racing courses.

We also run training courses to introduce both power boat and safety boat skills as these are valuable skills for our members to develop over time.

As a sailing club we can only offer training courses to our club members, however new members are always welcome. We are a self help club so membership carries some obligations too but these are not onerous and a great way to meet other members. Learning to sail at Tamworth Sailing Club is a very cost effective and enjoyable way to gain your RYA qualifications.

Why learn to sail at Tamworth Sailing Club?

Modern training boats, a team of friendly instructors, and courses that attract excellent feedback are a given and you should expect that wherever you learn to sail.

However it is the support, encouragement, and guidance on hand after the course is finished that sets Tamworth Sailing Club apart. In addition the club training boats are available at no extra charge for our students for the remainder of the sailing season (when the clocks change in the autumn). We want you to carry on sailing to practice your new found skills and really build confidence on the water. Come along to the club when we are open and speak to our members to find out more.
