Haversham Sailing Club is a RYA Recognised Training Centre

Qualifications earned on RYA courses are recognised and valued in most parts of the world.

We have a superb team of volunteer Senior Instructors, Instructors and Assistant Instructors who give their time freely which enables us to offer a wide range of courses at a very reasonable cost.

All of our courses run over two days and two evening sessions, usually Thursday evening for shorebased work and Saturdays are spent afloat. 

The RYA scheme is structured to enable an absolute beginner to become a safe, competent sailor.

  • The Basic Scheme
    RYA Level 1: Start Sailing – for total beginners

  • RYA Level 2: Basic Skills – for those with Level 1 or equivalent skills and experience

  • RYA Level 3: Better Sailing – for those who have completed Level 2

    Improver and Advanced Courses
    Seamanship Skills
