There are a wide range of Instructor courses across our disciplines.

The centre will provide the dinghies, windsurfs, powerboats, yachts and indoor teaching areas required for you to perform the practical elements of the course. Pre requisites for the courses are displayed at the bottom of the Instructor Training section of the website Instructor Training

Getting wet is unavoidable on many of these courses so we will make sure you have the correct gear. A wetsuit, wetsuit boots, buoyancy aid and waterproof top is available for your use and can be dried overnight ready for the next day’s action. In addition we would request you bring garments such as swim wear, woolly hat and warm socks. Hot showers are available in the changing areas and accommodation areas so bring a towel.

For shore based courses we aim to provide the required tools and if anything specific for you to bring this will be discussed at time of booking.
