Training at Burton Sailing Club

Burton Sailing Club are proud to be a long established RYA affiliated training centre. As such we strive to instruct, train and coach all of our students to the high standards demanded by the RYA. Our team of instructors offer a warm and friendly welcome to all that would like to learn to sail or windsurf. With low instructor to student ratios, we will teach you at your own pace and spend as much time alongside you in the boat as you need, to build the confidence to go it alone. Your first 'solo' sail is a memory that you will treasure for the rest of your life!

At Burton SC we are delighted to be able to offer a wide range of sailing and windsurfing courses; from 'taster' sessions for complete beginners, through to more advanced training modules for those wishing to take part in the exciting world of dinghy racing. Please see below, for a list of upcoming course dates. If you cant see what you are looking for, please contact us and we will do our best to help.

We also offer regular RYA Powerboat training and safety courses throughout the year. Learning to drive a powerboat safely is a key skill for all water users and, as such, training for club members is actively encouraged and heavily subsidised by the club.

In addition to the formal RYA courses listed below, members often benefit from a variety of informal training happening on the water throughout the year. These sessions include windsurfing, race coaching, performance training (sailing with spinnakers and trapezing), youth training, RIB and Powerboat training and beginners/improver sessions. Keep an eye on the news board or the calender for up to date information or go to the 'Sailing' tab above for more general information.
