My first introduction to watersports was sailing a Mirror dinghy and canoeing on a small lake. I joined Reigate and Banstead Canoe Club in 1981 and started competing in canoe slalom and whitewater racing.
After a few years I formalised my training with an RYA Dinghy course, and then the comforts of yachts over dinghies won over and I started sail cruising along the South Coast of England, the Channel Islands, France and Spain.
I am looking forward to introducing our children to the delights of sailing and all things water...

So........you’ve decided you want to undertake some kind of training course to do with water. You may even know the type of vessel – sailing yacht, dinghy, powerboat, motorboat or windsurfer. It’s tempting to move forward by taking a look at boating magazines or searching on the internet........but STOP!
