RYA Courses



Llangorse Sailing Club is a RYA Recognised Training Centre (RTC) and has to be one of the most beautiful dinghy sailing settings in the country with great facilities.  All our instructors are fully RYA qualified and follow the relevant national syllabus.

We provide the boats, the buoyancy aids and safety supervision.  You only have to turn up and have tremendous fun.  Training is for all ages, not just for the kids!

Our training fleet consists of Optimist, Topper, Mirror and Comet Trio boats – adult courses are typically run in Comet Trios but single handed sailing is also done if appropriate.

Dinghy Sailing Courses – adults and juniors

We run great-value 2-day adult courses and junior courses throughout the season – please check our Training Programme for dates.

Our main training event is our annual “Family Week” (historically called Cadet Week) which is a five-day event run over the summer half term holiday.  This is an extremely popular event which offers training opportunities for adults as well as juniors.  Juniors from 8 upwards and all experiences from beginner to racer can apply.  For more information see the Family Week page

Powerboat Courses

We offer powerboat courses for the purpose of club members being able to drive our powerboats to support all club activities

We offer Powerboat 2 and Safety Boat courses, usually at the beginning and the end of the season – details can be found in the Training Programme
