Start Sailing

Hill Head is an RYA Accredited Training Centre, and offers a wide variety of courses and regular training sessions for members throughout the year. Training covers the core practical disciplines of sailing and power-boating, along with land-based First Aid and VHF courses.

Our primary focus when getting people into the world of sailing is making sure that your first steps into that boat are done in a safe and calm manner with volunteer instructors that can understand your needs. We pride ourselves with doing just that. Our Start sailing courses are done with each individual’s requirements in mind and we tailor the course, types of boats, methods of teaching accordingly.

Start sailing courses we run are:

  • Monthly Oppie sessions for children
  • RYA Youth Stage Level 1,2 & 3
  • RYA Adult Level 1 & 2 start sailing course

Many new members to Hill Head will be people who perhaps cannot sail. We provide an open and social environment whereby you can learn whilst being taught by our volunteer instructors and using our own club boat dinghy fleet.

We pride ourselves on creating a safe environment upon which you can have fun and the all important confidence that you need when learning.
