Hello SE1 friends,
Could anyone recommend a Dinghy Sailing course for adults nearby?
Thanks in advance

I've always fancied doing this, in case it's a skill I find I need one day (societal collapse, flooding, trip to Venice). It's also so local it seems a shame not to take advantage.

Edward, have you kept it up after doing the course?

Yes. It was more of a refresher's course as I used to do a lot of sailing when I was younger. Turns out that it's a bit like riding a bike - you never "unlearn" it.

I can highly recommend sailing. It's so, so, so much fun!

Westminster boating base is the other place (or it was a few yrs back - you'll have to check).
Depends which side of SE2 you are.
The RYA website lists all training schools. You need level 2 iirc, to rent dinghies on hols etc., so I'd go for that if you have a chance.

...if you press it, they will come.

Try Greenwich Yacht Club, they are now a RYA training centre

The Docklans sailing and watersports centre- near Millwall docks so not far-my son's school (Nautical) use it for their sailing and it seems good

Yes. I thought they just taught them how to be naughty ;0)
