RYA courses at Wildwind © Wildwind

As you are no doubt aware, RYA recognition implies that we operate to significant standards of safety and instruction. Indeed, our centre undergoes a thorough inspection by the RYA every year.

Simply tell us what you wish to learn

Although many of our guests are already accomplished sailors, many others are interested in taking one or more of the RYA courses that we offer at no extra charge. (a small charge is made for the certificate once the course is completed successfully).

If you are joining us on holiday and you would like to join in one of the courses, please do ask us at the very beginning of your stay; some courses (in particular the RYA Dinghy Level 2, which is widely accepted as implying a level of skill sufficient to rent a boat at most centres in Europe) take the best part of two weeks to complete.

Other courses (usually available only after you have acquired RYA Level 2) can be completed in a matter of days.

As always, feel free to ask any of our team for advice.

With best wishes,
Simon, Joe and the entire Wildwind team

Review of Wildwind Holidays by an ILCA sailor
