News, RYA

Hoorah…..! Great News!

It gives us an immense amount of pleasure and pride to announce that Salty Sailing has gained its certification as an officially recognised RYA training centre.

“This is simply the icing on the cake after an incredibly busy and successful Cowes Week”
Lizzy Fitzsimmons | Founder

Having passed all the requirements set out by the Royal Yachting Association regarding quality, knowledge and safety, we are able to offer a comprehensive range of RYA certified courses both practical and theory.  We can take you from Competent Crew all the way through to Yachtmaster Offshore and everything in between.

In addition to RYA courses, we also offer weekends away, channel crossings, cruises, family sails, skills development courses, skippered chartersand much much more!
