Booking is quick and easy
People of all ages can learn to sail at Cobnor. Whether you are a complete beginner, or you wish to update your previous sailing skills, as you are feeling a bit rusty - there is something for everyone.
Either book on one of our scheduled brochure courses, or call us for 1:1 private tuition in our fleet of Hartleys, Wayfarers, RS Qubas, or RS Fevas. You can attain qualifications following the RYA National Sailing Levels, or simply get out on the water and enjoy the beauty of Chichester Harbour.
2 consecutive days are all you need to start or you can book up the whole week. This Adult Sailing week offers you an opportunity to hone skills and spend more time on the water with full instruction and work towards your next RYA qualification. We recommend a minimum of 2 days (£140) and do additional days (or the whole week!) for just £70 per day. The course is recommended for anyone wishing to sail, regardless of experience. Each individual will work towards their own goals and possibly towards RYA certification. Expert tuition will be provided and sailing will be done in a mix of single and double handed boats.
At Cobnor we follow the RYA Syllabus for all our Adult Sailing Courses. We pride ourselves in providing an extremely high standard of tuition.
“We were both amazed and impressed by the competence and maturity of the instructors, especially given their age. For the young and the old learners they were inspirational.”Monica MacKinnon, Sailing Course sponsored by Sport England, July 2012.
This course provides a short introduction to sailing for novices. You will learn how to sail in all directions, including an awareness of launching and recovering. By the end of the course participants will have basic understanding of boat handling techniques and background knowledge and will be able to sail in light winds under supervision.
RYA Adult Level 1 participants will be given a logbook as part of the course fee. We advise everyone participating in RYA courses to have their own logbook as this will give you the opportunity to track progress and record your sailing experience.
Pre-requisite: Level 1
This course covers rigging, launching and sailing in all directions. It also includes capsize recovery and essential safety knowledge. By the end of the two day course you will be able to sail and make decisions in good conditions.
