AYC is a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) recognised training centre. Each year we run our ever popular summer holiday programme of RYA Dinghy Sailing courses, as well as lots of other RYA and Club activities throughout the season.
Whether you are new to sailing or if you already enjoy sailing and want to do more, booking onto one of our RYA sailing courses is a good next step. These sailing courses can take you from complete beginner to sailing or racing expert, from age 8 to 88, so there is something for everyone.
Individual sailing tuition is available for all throughout the season in dinghies and Power Boats and this is a great way to explore the river and enjoy picnic sails, learn to sail and develop existing skills.
For members there is an excellent junior sailing programme throughout the summer holidays for those who already have some experience, and Adults with prior sailing experience can also join our Wednesday afternoon ‘Ladies (and occasional Lads) who Launch’ and Sunday morning ‘Club Sailing’ where junior and family participation is welcomed. There is an instructor on hand for advice and assistance afloat for these and these are held at times when there is no club racing, so the river is quieter.
Out of the busy summer months we run powerboating and shorebased courses as well as instructing and coaching courses.
