London Sailing Courses

In London we run Day Skipper, Yachtmaster and Ocean Yachtmaster navigation classes as well as the RYA 1 day courses in various locations. We usually have something running within the City, Canary Wharf, Holborn and Limehouse but we will and do run courses anywhere in London.

Shorebased sailing courses are extremely popular within the Capital. We have a base in Limehouse at the Cruising Association from where we run the full range of RYA shorebased courses but we also specialise in going into the offices of companies all over London, from Canary Wharf to Brentford, and running evening classes for employees of those companies and their family and friends. ‘Outsiders’ to these companies (ie non employees) are also often allowed to attend.

You are welcome to join one of the courses advertised on our website. Alternatively, we would be delighted to come to your office and run a sailing course for yourself and your colleagues. There may be a certain charm to such convenience.
