ADSC Sailing Academy


As a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) certified training centre, the Sailing Academy offers RYA courses, programs and qualifications, inclusive of powerboat courses to Members of all ages, and abilities. The courses and programs are run by a qualified and experienced team of RYA Instructors who are also Club Members and are invested through their passion to grow the sport here at The Club.

Adult Members are guided through the RYA Sailing Scheme from levels 1 to 3. Progress your way through the stages from understanding how a boat sails to sailing a double-handed boat as crew or helm. The scheme comprises a series of levels enabling you to progress quickly from beginner to expert in a controlled, safe and enjoyable environment.

The Sailing Academy also offers ladies only RYA courses over an eight-week duration with our female instructor Edith.
