Sailing for School Groups

£POA Booking


Forward thinking schools have long recognised the value of the outdoor classroom. Here at Stormforce Coaching we offer "School's Sailing". Teachers can bring groups to us for a session, a day or a series of sessions. The most popular option being weekly sessions. Groups can choose between PE sessions during the school day or after school sessions. While we offer several activities the most popular for schools are our SB20 keelboats. Youth sailors can work through the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme, achieving RYA certificates as they learn to sail. The three most common activities we offer are;

  1. Keel Boating (open 6m sailing boats)
  2. Yacht Sailing (larger sailing yachts with cabins) 
  3. Powerboating

RYA certificates are available for all disciplines.




The beauty of our SB20 keelboats are that they do not capsize and the children do not therefore need to wear wetsuits. Not only is this more hygienic than other watersports but it saves considerable time at the start and end of sessions as groups do not need to get changed twice. The result is they spend more time sailing.

We provide every sailor with a buoyancy aid or life jacket.
