Female only courses

We are now pleased to be able to offer RYA Competent crew and RYA Day Skipper female only courses.

With a maximum of 4 students to one female instructor.

Many females would love to learn to sail but feel nervous about the perception that it is a male dominated sport. Also females tend to learn differently than men, and by offering female only courses, you will learn to sail and gain confidence with other like-minded females in an atmosphere that is tailored towards you as a female.

Here is a quote from a lady who has asked many times for a course with only ladies on board:

“What a great idea, I would feel a lot more comfortable doing a course with other ladies. I always feel a bit nervous on board with men, as though they are judging me. This would be amazing.”
