New Approach to RYA Training Courses

A professional sailing school, Hamilton Sailing, is now dealing with the administration and delivery of theory courses at CA House through to August 2013. It is a small company of experienced and highly competent enthusiasts with a reputation for delivering knowledge in an accessible and (fairly!) painless way. The company also has two yachts available for practical instruction and for cruising holidays to gain sea time. One yacht operates from Neptune Marina, Ipswich, while the other is available for skippered holiday cruises from a base in Sardinia.CA members benefit from a discount on the cost of both theory and practical courses.

Please note that all enquiries regarding courses and the booking of places should be addressed directly to Hamilton Sailing.
