Most will be registered training establishments with the RYA, so a visit there may help, though the RYA site is difficult to follow.


Maybe its because we have so many sailing schools in Cornwall. They tend to teach people to sail. The clubs provide coaching and racing.

Could be, Buzz. Also easier to run both on a pond, rather than tidal water, which involves greater resources and more people to ensure safety. I'm only really used to inland setups, my Restronguet days being 25 years ago!

Hi All
Looking forward to Sunday, Open day at local sailing club. Had a word with Rear Commodore who gives lessons (without certificates!!) and is willing to take me on. For the open day was advised to bring wet gear!! All I have for the day is Waterproof golf gear!! If all goes well, will invest in some gear. Not too many Dinghy gear shops, seems like most of it is on-line, pity, I like to support local shops, Oh well!! Will let you know how I get on, Have a good weekend sailing......

Hi,
I think that the wet gear = some clothes that are ok to get wet plus a spray top and trainers/plimsolls that aren't spoilt by getting wet.
This time of year I normally sail (inland) with shorts, t shirt, dinghy boots with the option of a spray top for when it rains or gets cooler or indeed if there's a lot of spray.

Enjoy the day and take spare clothing + towel!

Colin
