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.
2019 Season Courses
The dates have now been finalised for our RYA Level 1 and 2 courses. The cost of a 2 day Level 1 course is £180 per person which includes: £30 temporary 6 months membership of the club; course hand book and certificates logbook and buoyancy aids . There are 12 places available, day courses run from 9.30 am to 5.30pm pm and the course is undertaken in our training boats comprising of Laser Picos, and Hartley 12.2s on the lake. Temporary membership enables anyone completing the Start Sailing Course to attend Ladies Night- ‘This Girl Can’; Progress My Sailing , Family Sailing and Go Sailing sessions held at the club. Members who do not have their own boat pay £25 per year to use club boats at these sessions which contributes to the maintenance and insurance of the fleet of club boats.
The Level 2 course costs £150 to club members and priority for the 12 places is given to adults who have completed a level 1 course with the club .
During the Spring , the Club has regular sessions with a coach which in 2019 are : This Girl Can on Wednesday night; Family Friday evenings, and Progress My sailing on Saturday afternoons . When there are not coaching sessions members run Go Sailing sessions. The aim is to help new sailors progress and get out on the water with other members and to take up regular sailing.
