We are proud to be an RYA Training Centre

Adult training

We offer a range of RYA 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 and RYA Stages 2 & 3 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 Level 3 Better Sailing and RYA Start Racing courses.

As a sailing club we can only offer training courses to 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 learn to sail and to gain your RYA qualifications.


Junior training

We run RYA Junior OnBoard training on sailing Saturdays 9am to midday; so whether you are a complete beginner or have achieved RYA Stage 1 and would like to progress, we have specific training to meet your needs.

Why learn to sail at Tamworth Sailing Club?

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. 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.
