All our RYA courses are run at Notts Country Sailing Club, on our extensive water near Hoveringham. Our facilities include a wide range of dinghies, (add link to boat page) training rooms, changing facilities, showers, and accessible facilities for disabled sailors.  Along with a clubroom where drinks are available. Hot and cold food is often available too.

We provide a RYA Syllabus and Logbook as part of the course and have other material available to purchase to support the courses. 

Our student instructor ratios are 6:1 in accordance with the RYA guidance, but generally better, and safety boat coverage is always on duty.

Please note , to aid boat allocation, we ask for weight and height on youth courses (under 16s). If under 16s have their own boat please state that on the booking form (Qu 2 about you).
