Training courses / Sailing Coaching

Imperial Yacht Club offer a number of dinghy sailing courses during the year and also offer an after school sailing program for children who would like to do sailing as a school sport. 

Courses are available for adults and children, whether you are a complete novice who has never sailed before, intermediate where you are just getting the hang of it, to advanced and would now get into regatta racing. 

Our adult dinghy sailing coaching course will take you step-by-step from your first knot to out on the water sailing through tacks and gybes. All you need is wet gear, towel, cap, suncream, and a change of clothes. You're welcome to use your own life jacket, else we have ones that you can use. The course includes course notes, the use of boats, life jacket, lunch of the day from our galley and cold drink. Other refreshments are also available from the galley.

Assisted Sailing

So you've done a a course but not quite ready to move to the next level? Assisted sailing is coming down to the club at a prearranged time with the coach and spend time on the water practicing what you have learnt. Coach will be on hand to answer any questions and assist where you need.
