WOSC Sailing School

West Oxfordshire Sailing Club has a well established, Royal Yachting Association (RYA) recognised, sailing school that has taught people of all ages (14 to 65+) to sail for many years. All tuition is organised under the supervision of a RYA Senior Instructor and participants will gain a nationally recognised certificate in sailing.

The Sailing School offers two basic courses:

Level 1 - On this course, we start with the assumption that you have never been in a sailing boat before and, by the end, you will be able to sail in light winds with an instructor in the boat.

Level 2 - By the end of this course, you will be safety conscious, have a basic knowledge of sailing and be capable of sailing, in light winds, without an instructor on board.

Each course lasts two days (Saturday and Sunday), each day starting promptly at 9.30 and ending at approximately 17.00

The costs are:

Members of WOSC
Non Members
£130 per level
£150 per level
£240 for Level 1 & 2 consecutively
£280 for Level 1 & 2 consecutively

These prices include a non-refundable booking fee of £15 per level

For these fees you receive experienced tuition, use of club boats and relevant equipment, access to changing rooms with hot showers, tea and coffee, a personal log and a beginners handbook.

You must be able to swim 50 metres in light clothing (you will not be tested on this) but you are expected to be confident enough in water, wearing a buoyancy aid, to participate in the capsize drill.

It is recommended that, if possible, you take levels 1 and 2 on consecutive weekends. The continuity of learning with a group that you get to know, can make learning easier and adds to your enjoyment.

If you or friends from outside the club would like to experience learning to sail in a framework of safety please contact Barry Buzzard for further details.
