Weir Wood Sailing Club is a recognised RYA Training Establishment. All our training is based upon approved RYA practice. Training courses range from those tailored for complete beginners through to courses in advanced sailing techniques for those wishing to improve and hone their sailing skills. We also run Powerboat courses (Basic Skills and the Safety Boat Course) for members who wish to support sailing.

We are currently at Step 3 which means we still need to maintain social distancing especially on the slipways and during shore based instruction. Please listen to your instructors’ guidance on what you need to do to stay safe.

Private Lessons

Private sessions aimed at those who have not sailed for a while and looking to get back into sailing on their own terms, or for those wishing to take their sailing to the next level. Further details and bookings can be found here
