Women On Water

These courses are suited to women of all ages who are interested in sailing, whether or not you have any previous experience.

All are welcome, some members are starting from scratch, while others are seeking to develop existing skills and the course can be joined either as an individual or with a group of friends.

The course is planned to give you as much fun and enjoyment as possible. Our RYA qualified club skippers will guide you through “man” overboard drills, safety, boat handling and tying the essential knots.
We will always endeavour to have a female club skipper, but instructors can be either male or female.
