Date published: 13 June 2021


After a long gap when training courses were not allowed, Dovestone Sailing Club is set to restart its popular Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Level 1 and 2 Dinghy courses soon.

The courses take complete beginners up to a standard where they can sail safely and independently.

For full details about the courses, take a look at the RYA website: www.rya.org.uk/training/courses 

You can also book a course using the club's website: http://dovestonesc.org.uk/training.php

The courses take place over the weekends of July 17/18 and August 21/22.

A Dovestone Sailing Club spokesperson said: "This summer would be a perfect time to learn to sail and Dovestone provides the most beautiful surroundings. 

"The reservoir provides ideal sailing waters for all levels of ability.

"Whether you are taking your first steps afloat or want to develop your skills, the club has a dedicated team of instructors and coaches to look after you.

"You don't need your own boat - all equipment is provided."

The club is an RYA recognised teaching establishment for dinghy sailing and power boating.

Trainers are also authorised to carry out tests for the International Certificates of Competence.
