Keelboat Sailing

orange-line

Who says yachting is just for adults? Learning to sail in keelboats is great fun. With a more spacious and stable boat, there is a far smaller chance of going for a swim. As there is room for more, you can learn how to sail with others by your side.

With courses from beginner stage through to advanced for ages 13 and above, learning the ropes on these bigger boats is the perfect platform into the world of yachting. If this sounds like your thing, try our Youth Keelboat Stage 2 course or you can come to our Keelboat Club on Thursday nights.
