Croydon Sailing Club is an official RYA Training Centre offering a number of opportunities for adult (18+) non-sailors to learn to sail on our official RYA Level 1 courses. Existing sailors can improve their skills on our official RYA Level 2 course and those out of practice sailors can get back on the water via informal refresher days.
If you’re looking for sailing opportunities at South Norwood Lake for children (under 18), please contact your local Scout group.

The Level 2 course costs £150 to club members and priority for the 10 places is given to adults who have completed a level 1 course with the club .
Enhanced Sailing Sessions – During the Spring and Summer the Club plans to run regular sessions with a coach, specifically designed to help increase the confidence and skills of those members who started sailing recently.
