Learn to sail while making friends

Social Sailing is historically the biggest section of sailing that is offered to our members. If you are a complete beginner our experienced members will provide friendly, high quality tuition, or maybe you just don't fancy the competitiveness of racing and would rather spend your weekend cruising on Derwent Reservoir. Our social sailing offers something for anyone!

RYA courses are also on offer to those looking to earn qualifications and, run by our own qualified Instructors, they have been a massive hit since we began running them in 2016.

Social sailing takes place on a Sunday and continues all year round.
