RYA Training Centre

Sailing Courses

As an RYA Training Centre, Ulley Sailing Club offers everybody the chance to have a go at sailing.

Whether you’re a member of the public or a member of the Club there are different ways that you can get involved.

If you’re unsure whether sailing is for you, you may wish to book onto one of our half-day “Sailing Experience” sessions. You will be introduced to sailing by one of our experienced, competent members who will run through the basics and take you for a sail. You may even get to take the helm yourself and be able to sail a simple course by the end of the session.  

We also offer RYA Level 1 and 2 courses to club members at very competitive prices.

Further information and booking details can be obtained by clicking on the links below.

What People Say

Excellent affordable and patient training for absolute beginners such as myself with great rescue boat cover that I’ve been very grateful for! Also very easy going and welcoming folk at the club!


A great club, run entirely by its members as volunteers, in a beautiful setting, accessible by public or private transport. Really affordable – you can sail for a year at less than the price of a family day out at a theme park and welcomes people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and disabilities.
