What to Bring

Bad weather – We will always do our best to run the course, so if it’s raining or just general bad weather, the course will go-ahead. However we do reserve the right to cancel or reschedule the course.

Safety – As a recognised training centre we comply with all standards set out by the RYA. While sailing is a safe sport everything in life has an element of risk.
