RYA Youth Scheme


RYA advice currently prevents us from putting instructors in boats with students, once this advice is relaxed we plan on resuming Tuition, Taster Sessions, Kids Weeks, Swallows & Amazons etc.
Until we have some indication of when this may be we are not taking any tuition bookings.

STAGE 1 → Beginners course, with plenty of fun and games!

STAGE 2 → The next step, learning how to tack, gybe and more!

STAGE 3 → More emphasis on solo sailing and gaining confidence.

STAGE 4 → Moving on to larger boats and perfecting skills. the next steps after completing this course include RYA racing and spinnaker courses.

Mum and Dad → Our aim, in conjunction with the RYA, is to get youngsters on the water having fun in a healthy environment, with a safe attitude to sailing in four easy steps. No one will be made to do anything they don’t want to do in the process and all will have fun, with no awareness that you’ve sent them somewhere to learn something they will never forget.

Please contact us to discuss details.

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 fantastic 5 days tuition at Glenridding Sailing Centre for 2 adults and one 8 yr old child. We all had a ball, the most fun and relaxing family holiday yet. For those of you reading this, this centre is awesome. We went from one novice child and two rusty adults (we’re talking sailing ability here!) to the proud achievers of a RYA Stage 2 certificate (child) and two RYA Level 2 certificates (plus some Level 3 practice – adults) in 5 short days. Tuition was excellent, patient and FUN! for all three of us. For parents reading this, your child is in safe hands, attention to safety of kids whilst giving them a fab experience is paramount at Glenridding, so relax, book yourself on a course as well and enjoy the ride! We’ll be back. Thanks to everyone, was worth every penny…” – Gill T
