Spinnaker is the perfect venue for anyone to develop their sailing or powerboat skills in a safe, friendly environment.  As an RYA recognised training centre, Spinnaker has highly qualified instructors and coaches waiting to help you achieve your ambitions on the water, whatever your age or ability.

All of our RYA courses follow the syllabus described in the RYA Schemes. These are outlined on the relevant pages. The instructors will focus only the skills set out in that particular level and will expect the student to be at the required starting level of ability for that level. Courses are spread over several days to give the student opportunity to practice what they are taught. If the student can demonstrate the required skills consistently over time they will be awarded that level.

If applicable, certificates will be awarded free of charge. If you wish to purchase a log book to keep a record of your achievement, these may be purchased during your course.

While each course leads on from the previous stage/level it is essential that the students practice their skills they have learnt before progressing onto the next course so that their confidence is maintained.
