Student Feedback

“Thank you to all the volunteers for setting up and delivering a brilliant first couple of days doing the RYA1 – it was incredible! What a lovely club you are – I had a wonderful time.” 

“Thanks so much to you and the team for running such an enjoyable, informative and well put together course. I had an absolutely brilliant time, learnt a huge amount and can’t wait to get back out on the water!

“Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to learn to sail at my own pace. I was particularly pleased to learn about the weekly informal training sessions and cheap boat hires made available after my Level 1&2 and Level 3 RYA courses. They allowed me to maintain and improve the skills that I had learnt and gave me the confidence to sign up for racing at the club. I have made great sailing friends too, which is always a bonus! I am proud to be a member of Littleton Sailing Club!”

“The club and the instructional team are a great asset and have provided exactly the enthusiastic and encouraging atmosphere that I needed. What a great team.”
