RYA Keelboat Courses

hawksailing copy


Our RYA Keel Boat Endorsement gives you the option to learn the RYA method on something larger and far more stable than a dinghy, where the possibilities for getting wet other that being rained on is a lot less likely!

We offer RYA Level 1, RYA Level 2 and RYA Seamanship Skills. The content is almost the same, as for dinghies although there are a few differences. Our courses run from 10am – 5pm with an hour for lunch.

We can teach you on our HAWK 20 keel boat or on one of our Traditional sailing boats, which are great boats for those who are less mobile than most or who do not want to get wet.

We also welcome people to bring their own boats and we can also send an instructor to you if you have a boat on one of the other Lakes in Cumbria.

All course prices include logbooks and certificates.

Gift Vouchers are available for all our Courses – you can now buy online!

All course prices include logbooks and certificates – please note the Adult and Junior courses can be combined. A £60 deposit per person is required to secure your place on the course. This is non refundable due to the unpredictable nature of the weather, however rescheduling your course is not a problem.

“…Thank you so much for two fantastic days of level 1 keelboat tuition. Great weather, good facilities and lovely, enthusiastic people. Credit to Tim, he enabled 3 complete novices to reach an unexpected level of competence and confidence in such a short period of time with “no dramas”. We will be back and will definitely recommend you…” – Karen, Kathryn & Lisa
