Adult Sailing Courses
Rutland Sailing School runs Adult Sailing Courses because it has recognised that Personal Coaching is one of the most effective ways of learning to sail. For adults we offer 1.1 or 2.1 and group, tuition this allows us to provide the most comprehensive, effective and time efficient means of teaching. The ability to tailor the course to previous sailing experience (if any!) makes personal coaching a more flexible way to learn, teaching to your speed, commitments and to your style. Adult courses are usually undertaken in either a Laser Bahia or Laser Stratos.
We teach to The Royal Yatching Association (RYA) standards.
