Learn To Sail At BSC

The club’s RYA approved School runs courses throughout the season for both members and non-members wishing to take up sailing or power boating or improve their skills. Courses are offered for both adults and juniors using modern equipment and with first class tuition. All aspects of the school’s activities are regularly inspected by the RYA. Through the school, the club also engages in a range of community outreach programmes, working with local schools and charities to provide sailing opportunities to those who would not otherwise have access to such opportunities.
