At SWAC, we love sailing because it offers such a wide variety of experiences for the entire family. It can be your hobby, your holiday or simply - your 'me' time!
We have courses available for delivery in Dinghy sailing, Multihull sailing or Keelboat sailing and with over 70 boats in the dinghy park, there are plenty of opportunities once you get the hang of things to keep you progressing.
We know it can be intimidating taking your first step into a new hobby, but there’s nothing to worry about, sailing is brilliant fun! Take your worries away knowing that we teach to the RYA (Royal Yachting Association) National Sailing Scheme – meaning you get expert training and tuition.
This is where you learn how to sail! We usually run these as a weekend-long introduction into sailing, where no experience is needed.
This course introduces you to the fundamentals of sailing, including sailing up, down and across the wind, turning the boat and what to do in the event of a capsize.
RYA Key learning points: Rigging, launching, landing, sailing in all directions, capsize recovery, safety information and basic sailing theory.
Our friendly instructors will be with you every step of the way, offering clear instruction, guidance and encouragement.
Usually, by the end of the 2 days you will be sailing on your own, with the instructor overseeing your newly learnt skills from a powerboat.
Other than the fact we’re an RYA Training Centre of excellence, have access to arguably one of the best sailing locations across the globe and are located in the heart of the South Coast:
Our courses are led by friendly, passionate and qualified RYA Instructors – some might say some of the best in the industry.
We also offer courses suitable for adults, children, groups and those with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities – anybody can learn new skills.
