Why Learn To Sail?
People join our learn to sail courses for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you want to learn a new skill, or perhaps you enjoy the outdoors and want to keep fit, or maybe you want to be part of a thriving, friendly club. Whatever your reasons, you’ll be welcome at Trimpley.
Simply The Best
As a RYA Training Centre training courses are run by RYA qualified instructors and coaches. This means you get a structured and refined course delivered to nationally set standards and you get a recognised qualification at the end of it. Add to this Trimpley’s own brand of friendliness and hospitality and you can be assured of a throurgh and enjoyable introduction to the fantastic sport of sailing.
Because Kids Learn Differently
While adults are taught at a 2 to 1 ratio, we keep kids in a group. We have loads of youth boats they can sail either on their own or buddied up. The group is led by an experienced Dinghy instructor, who will teach all the basics of sailing in lots of fun activities. Make sure you bring a spare change of clothes!
Safe, challenging, fun. You cant learn or enjoy yourself if you’re not safe. That’s why safety is our top priority. We have two fast response safety patrol boats that are equipped to deal with a wide range of incidents. We provide life jackets or buoyancy aids to keep you afloat, which are compulsory to wear. Our experienced instructors will keep you safe, and let you know what to do in an emergency.
