Finding YSC

YSC has an excellent reputation for supporting the development of sailors at all levels. Our volunteer instructors go the extra mile to help you understand the basics and make the most of sailing...

I had a great time and learned lots and thankfully was given the opportunity to sail solo which let me focus more on the tasks.


The club is very welcoming and I really enjoyed the 'push' that the trainers gave, to test boundaries and find the learners speed and capabilities.


Well done, keep up the good work and hopefully I'll find some time to keep going..


Interested? Come along to a Come & Try Sailing session or to our annual Open Day to experience sailing for yourself with one of our experienced instructors.
