Looking to learn a new skill or brush up on old ones?

At AHOY, we run a wide range of courses in sailing, rowing and powerboating as well as theory courses in First Aid, VHF (radio) use and navigation.

All of our instructors are qualified, experienced and passionate about involving others in their sports and improving the confidence and skills of learners.

We offer reduced rates for group bookings (4 or more participants) and for our dedicated volunteers.
