Learn To Sail

Learn to sail at Swarkestone

Swarkestone Sailing Club is a long established RYA Training centre which offers courses covering a range of abilities for Adults, Juniors, Sailability and those wishing to get involved with safety boats. We also regularly put forward members of our club for Assistant instructor, Dinghy instructor and Senior instructor courses. All of our instructors are volunteers, and are usually quite happy to take out less experienced sailors, especially on our “Picnic and Play” Saturdays.
