Training at Bexhill Sailing Club

Learn to sail in 2018 at Bexhill Sailing Club!

Who wants to sail round the world?

Who wants to be a champion dinghy racer?

Who wants to cruise off into the sunshine

You could do all of these things once you learn to sail at Bexhill!

Bookings are now open for the 2018 “Learn to Sail” Course. The course is aimed at adults over 18 with little or no experience. It will turn you into an RYA Level 2 Sailor. You will be able to sail a dinghy round a triangle course, carrying out all the essential techniques and manoeuvres. You will be able to rig a variety of dinghies, learn where and when to sail safely, and be introduced to all the aspects of sailing.

The fee for the course is £300. This includes membership of Bexhill Sailing Club for the whole of the course and the rest of the year. You will be able to take part in all the Club activities. You get free use of the Club boats after completing the course, and if you join the Club for the following year you get free use of the Club boats again for that year. Your final certificate and course books are all included.

The course starts with an Introduction Evening on Friday 1st June. Then it’s straight in to Session 1 on Saturday 2nd June at 13:00. There are nine Saturday sessions, morning or afternoon depending on the tide, finishing on 28th July. The course ends with the Learn to Sail Regatta on 4th August.

Following up from the course you can sail in all the Club events, weather permitting, and there are sessions for coaching and helping beginners, particularly in our famous Sea Week when we sail every day from Monday 13th to Friday 17th August.

We also provide power-boat training to RYA Level 2.

Sail Training is also provided for under 18s, see our Cadet Section  and email

    Sundays Autumn series races 5 and 6 ran back to back. Just as well, what with heavy surf to get your dinghy to break through off the beach, then quite a swell meant only one launch for two races. 17 boats took to the water, including novice Lee Roberts, who is really getting the feel …More »
