* Try Our Summer course - 2024 *

Places just released (19 May)

For the first time in a while we are running a summer course for junior sailors. There will be a Beginner group, aimed at covering basic skills and working towards Stage 1 and 2, and an Improver group, aiming at Stage 2 and 3. We will try to meet demands for specific skills to be covered, but it will be dependent on individual abilties within the group.
You will need to be in Year 6 or higher as the location is quite demanding.
There will be a maximum of 14 places, so do register for a place soon as demand is expected to be high.
The course will run for 3 & 1/2 hours each day from Monday 22 July to Friday 26 July, so there will be plenty of time to enjoy your sailing.
The course fee will be £150.

Neptune Sailing is based on the River Orwell at Woolverstone, near Ipswich. We have a large number of craft, of different types and provide a range of Dinghy Sailing and Powerboat training and assessment. During the season the centre is available to both young people and adults. We aim to provide high quality tuition, based on the RYA National schemes.

Our Youth Groups run on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings for Beginners, Improvers and Advanced skills and are open to all young people. They are very popular, so making an early approach regarding joining one of the groups is advisable.

Adult training courses are run mainly during weekends and cover the RYA Sailing Schemes to Level 3 and RYA Powerboat Level 1 and 2, as well as Safety Boat. We are happy to offer courses to groups and individuals at other times.
