Training

Stewartby Water Sports Club Sailing Section School is an RYA recognised training centre. Learn to sail / Powerboat / Windsurf with qualified RYA Instructors; alternatively, if you prefer paddling then you can come and learn Kayaking / Canoeing / Paddleboarding with qualified BC Coaches. We aim to deliver your training to the highest standards and make it an enjoyable and satisfying experience; qualifications earned on RYA courses are recognised and valued in most parts of the world. We have a superb team of volunteer Senior Instructors, Instructors, Assistant Instructors and Paddle Coaches who give their time freely which enables us to offer a wide range of activity at a very reasonable cost. All our courses run over one or two days covering shorebased work and as much time as possible spent afloat. The RYA schemes are structured to enable an absolute beginner to become a safe, competent sailor or powerboater.

The 200-acre Stewartby lake is one of the largest stretches of water in the area surrounded by the Marston Vale Forest Park

The Sailing Section school delivers training for both adult and youth by following the NGB's syllabi by one of the following methods:

  • Courses
  • 1-2-1 Tuition
  • Own boat Tuition

The school has a range of modern equipment for tuition which are also available for your use during your first year of membership, if you join the club as a member! We can supply you with all the equipment you will need to start sailing. The club has great facilities with showers, changing rooms, wet classrooms, a galley (kitchen) is generally available during the summer months. We even have a bar should you feel like celebrating your new qualification!

Our instructors / coaches are mostly club members, committed to passing on their enthusiasm and knowledge, ensuring that your time with us will be truly rewarding. As we are not a commercial centre, although we publish dates for certain courses to help planning, if you cannot find a suitable date please do not hesitate to call or send an email and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If you would like to come to the club to meet some of the sailing school instructors and have a look around the facilities, you would be more than welcome.
