WandererMums beginner course using Toppers

We organise adult combined RYA Level 1 and 2 course in May and September each year. The format, content and delivery follows the guidelines laid down by the RYA. The sessions run over three evenings and five Saturdays. The training is carried out in our double handed Wanderer dinghies with an instructor on board initially.These sessions are aimed at beginners and at the end of the sessions the sailors should be competent to sail in light winds. The sessions are open to non-members of the club but we hope you enjoy yourself so much you will want to join us! We also offer shorter beginners courses to RYA Level 1 during the summer months using single handed Topper dinghies.Feedback from our previous students includes:

  • ‘Can’t think of any improvement to the course it was excellent’
  • ‘Very friendly and helpful club’
  • ‘Throughly enjoyed the whole experience’

If you are still not convinced then come to the club and talk to some of our recent members who twelve months earlier decided to sign up for one of our beginner courses!

In addition for club members we offer a number of the RYA Advanced sailing modules including ‘Start Racing’, ‘Sailing with Spinnakers’ and ‘Seamanship Skills’ and a Club Night every Monday from May with supported sailing.


Sail in Company at our Club Night every Friday through the season with supported sailing.
This is a great opportunity for sailors of any ability to come and improve their skills. There will be qualified instructors or experienced sailors available to give tips and advice and a safety boat on the water for your reassurance. We look forward to seeing you on Friday evenings from May.

Welcome to the wonderful world of windsurfing!  I hope you will join us to share in our love of this sport that can take you from balancing on a board on a dry-land simulator to sailing around on our lake on one of our Start courses within a couple of short hours!  Enjoy the freedom of gliding over the water, just you and the elements, or take it up a level to higher-speed blasting and the exhilaration of planing on the board, skimming the surface of the water at speed.
