Adult Training

We welcome all abilities to join our Club and endeavour to provide the courses that members' request:

  • RYA Level 1 - For complete beginners. Learn how to sail in all directions and about awareness of launching and recovery.
  • RYA Level 2 - Basic skills. Build confidence and gain the skills needed to sail and make decisions in good conditions.

For experienced sailors, in the winter there is class specific race training on Saturday mornings organised by Class Captains. See the calendar.

We also provide courses in spinnaker handling, racing, race officer, and powerboat handling.

  • RYA Level 2 powerboat/safety boat. Powerboat handling, the use of safety equipment, and recovery techniques. To promote a good standard of safety boat cover for our sailing.
  • RYA Instructor and Assistant Instructor courses. We sponsor suitably qualified members to become RYA Instructors, who then contribute to our training and coaching courses at Papercourt.

If you would like more information about any aspect of our training, please email us.

Our qualified Instructors are volunteer Club members who give their time for the benefit of fellow members. Members must be age 16+ and should email training@papercourt-sc.org.uk to book on any sailing courses. For all other courses email the contact shown.
