Shearwater Sailing School


Shearwater Sailing School is a family run sailing school specialising in providing a friendly, fun and quality sailing experience. All practical and theory courses are taken by expert RYA Yachtmaster Instructors.  At £565 for a fully inclusive 5 day RYA course you will also struggle to beat our prices.


Because we are a small school, we can be very flexible with the full range of RYA courses we offer.


- Want to learn to sail on your own boat?  We can do Own Boat Tuition for you.


- Need specific dates not listed, we can often accomodate that as well.


- Two day brush up sails, two day ICC training courses and exam.


- Build your sailing miles on an adventure to Holland,  France or Belgium.
