We run our courses in association with Oxford Sailing Club, who provide access to facilities and equipment.
Adult RYA Level 3 Better Sailing
On completion of this course the successful sailor will be safety conscious and capable of sailing without an instructor on board in moderate conditions. This course is designed to allow the sailor to practice and consolidate their technique whilst experiencing some of the thrill involved in advanced sailing, such as spinnakers, trapezing and simple race techniques. Please note this is a two day course.
School Holiday 5-day Multi-Activity Course
New for 2021 is our re-vamped Multi-Activity course. We have focused this course on fun and making it the easiest way for juniors to get on the water and experience what the outdoor life has to offer.
The layout of the course is divided into dinghy sailing and paddle sports, with the younger sailors working towards their RYA Stage 1 qualification on our stable and easy to use Laser "Funboat" dinghy's. Whilst not the most technical boats, these are simple and stable making them the idea introductory tool for younger children.
The paddlesport & raft building element of the course is the ideal break from the technical aspects of dinghy sailing and the perfect fun session to finish your day on! We use a mixture of SUP paddleboards and kayaks based on the reservoir and then progressing onto the Thames and some river adventures towards the end of the week! The children will also experience fun and games with our NEW raft building sessions, building communication and team building skills on their final day.
There's lots of fun to be had on this course and you'll make plenty of friends too!
