COVID-19 Sailing courses during the pandemic

UPDATED 05/01/2021

 In line with the national measures put in place by the UK Government  to control the spread of COVID-19,  we regret to confirm that all practical and in person classroom courses scheduled for January, February and early March 2021 have been suspended.

Non residential courses will resume from 7th March, subject to restrictions being sufficiently eased by then. We are, of course, monitoring developments and this website is being updated accordingly. All customers with course booked during January and February, will be contacted directly to discuss alternative arrangements.

Some online, distance learning and occupational courses remain available and are listed below.  Course dates for later in the year are also outlined and for more details please call our bookings office on 02380 457733. We are always happy to discuss your sailing plans.
