The Training Group

Our active Training Group comprises volunteers with a variety of experiences and qualifications.

The main aim of our Training Group is to encourage people in West Cornwall to take up sailing, enjoy the experience and be safe on the water.

Through our Training Group our club is an RYA Training Centre for:

RYA Dinghy Sailing Courses
RYA Powerboat Courses
RYA Shorebased Navigation Courses
RYA Diesel Engine Course
First Aid

Our main sail training course is run at the start of the sailing season between May and July.
Shorebased courses are run during the winter.
Powerboat courses are usually run at the beginning and end of the season.

Please book your space early to avoid disappointment.

Please be aware that we are not a commercial sailing school and that all our instructors are volunteers. Therefore we do not have a programme of regular courses – they are usually run when there is local demand.

Don’t have a boat?

If you don’t have a boat, the club owns a number of training dinghies that were bought and are maintained by the Training Group. We may also provide taster sails.

On holiday in Cornwall?

We do not aim to compete against commercial RYA Training Centres. If you are coming to West Cornwall on holiday and wish to go on a sailing course see the RYA website for other recognized RYA Training Centres in our area.
