Kielder Water Sailing Club

What our 'customers' say ......... Here are some quotes from people who have learned to sail with us: -

"I have had such a smile on my face after a fantastic weekend at the club.  Can't wait until next weekend.  Hats off to all instructors for creating such a positive and encouraging vibe during what must be for the Instructors very basic sailing skills."

"I really enjoyed the course last weekend. The capsize was much better than I had expected."

"Club members are extremely friendly and helpful in a relaxed and happy atmosphere."

"Everyone has been very friendly and made me feel very welcome. The course was excellent, I never thought I would manage to learn so much, thank you."

"The instructors were great, weather was terrific, club house was warm when it got cold and the food was excellent value. Just a shame I don't live right next to it."

KWSC offers a number of training courses for people with varying levels of sailing experience from complete beginners to more seasoned sailors. Our instructors are all RYA qualified and are members who offer their time freely. We run as many courses as we can during the year but regret that due to limited time and resources we can only offer training courses to members. However, if you have never sailed and would like a taster of what it would be like before joining the club and taking a course, one of the training team will happily take you out for a trial sail (no charge but donations to club funds welcome). We teach both adults and children, with youngsters following the RYA Young Sailors Scheme Stages 1-4.

Course dates and application forms (for members only please) can be found below.
