Sailing is a popular sport in the UK, with hundreds centres and clubs operating on our many lakes, rivers and coastline.

For adults the beginners syllabus is broken into 3 levels and for juniors there are 4 youth stages to complete.
Providers will typically offer skippered trips for untrained crew, but some providers also offer boat hire for those who have completed their basic certification.
