Course Overview

Learn to sail with the National Sailing Scheme

The scheme is a series of two-day courses for people wanting to learn in dinghies, small keelboats and multihulls.

It has been designed to help you enjoy whichever aspect of the sport appeals to you.

Adult beginners’ courses

The scheme is comprised of a series of two-day courses enabling you to progress quickly from beginner to experts in a controlled, safe and enjoyable environment. Each course can be taken in a dinghy, small keelboat or multihull.

Youth beginners courses

he Youth Scheme is usually completed in small dinghies suitable for your size. However, it can also be completed in keelboats and multihulls.

To make the most of our courses, ensure you are confident with the skills of one course before moving on to the next course. Most courses are a minimum of two days long (or an equivalent number of short sessions). They may be run over a longer period, especially if you haven’t sailed since your last course. Sailing is a sport which gets better with practice, and you should try to sail between courses whenever you can. Practice makes perfect!
