See if you can find yourself on our gallery.


New for 2020 - Keelboat courses now available.


We are now an RYA affiliated keelboat training center.

We run a a range of courses, from beginner to experienced dinghy sailor conversion courses (1 Day or assessment only dependent).

What is a Keelboat?

A usually larger, more stable boat with a keel that stops the boat from capsizing. Keelboats are a step up in size from dinghies, more like a small manageable yacht.

Learn to sail keelboats with our specially designed courses, these are ideal for those who want to start sailing but feel small dinghies might not be right for them. The keelboat offers a different sailing challenge but one that does not necessarily require the same level of fitness and mobility than for those starting out in smaller dinghies.
