Sailing Academy at RHSC

Learn to Sail with our Sailing Academy & Join the Club!

You’ll be using a great mix of dinghies, beginning with sailing with an instructor and leading up to navigating on your own around a full sailing course. Or of course, just enjoying a sail around Rye Bay. As well as its highly practical ‘hands on’ sessions, the programme includes sailing theory and a controlled capsize recovery, and all sailing has a rescue boat in attendance.

Your initial training is held with our training partner, Rye Watersports, on their lake. Once you have your Level 1 certificate (a 2-day course 6 hours each day), you’ll be able to join us at the club and sail as crew.  You’ll then need to add to your skills with a Level 2 certificate after which you’ll be able to sail solo and have access to our club boats free of charge. A years’ club membership is included in the price.
