Sailing is a great sport for all the family and here at SHSC we offer fully accredited RYA courses for both juniors and adults. On completion of the course, the successful sailor will be safety conscious, have a basic knowledge of sailing and be capable of sailing without instruction in light winds. Buoyancy aids, wetsuits and spray tops are provided.
