Our team of RYA Instructors, volunteers and helpers will ensure that every session is carefully managed, educational and most importantly fun! Whilst the main focus is on sailing, other activities may be included should the conditions make sailing unfeasible.

Additional items you will need to bring:

  • RYA Youth Sailing Logbook
  • Suitable footwear & outdoor clothing
  • Refreshments (minimum water bottle)

A comprehensive list of items to bring will be available in the joining instructions.



Improver Sailing - Saturdays

  • RYA 2&3

    Sailors hone their sailing skills through learning about the 5 essentials, how to gybe safely, developing wind awareness and developing their boat handling skills through manoeuvres such as leaving and returning to the beach in any wind direction. Wind and weather allowing, we aim to have a group sailing expedition to the other side of the Helford River on every course – a true sailing adventure!
