Sailing Courses and Taster Sessions

Taster Sessions
This is a chance for you to experience the joys of sailing and the beauty of Ullswater in the capable hands of one of our qualified instructors. We have a range of boats to choose from to suit all ages (8yrs +) and the size of your party. It's a great way of deciding whether sailing is right for you before undertaking one of our longer courses. Tasters are available every day of the week, a half day or a full day session, but require pre-booking.

Introduction to Sailing RYA Level 1
The first step, this provides a good introduction, getting you on the water, understanding boat handling techniques and safely enjoying the thrills of sailing. Over the years we have found that doing Level 1 over three days works the best. As one of the really important things with sailing is to learn the basics and slowly build up.

The Next Step RYA Level 2
These two days take you to a level where you can sail competently and safely on your own in reasonable weather conditions.

RYA 5 Day Courses
Combining both Levels 1 & 2 takes you from complete novice to having a basic knowledge of sailing and safety on the water in moderate conditions.
