Please read the RYA Competent Crew and RYA Day Skipper (Practical) course descriptions before booking your place. If you have any queries, call 01752 424514 or email us.

When training with us, not only will you be working to achieve your RYA qualification in Devon, you will have the opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful locations in the west-country. Throughout our RYA sailing courses, Devon and Cornwall guarantee fabulous sailing ground with immediate access to stunning locations. Imagine leaving Plymouth Sound, training throughout the day on the yacht, then arriving at the quaint town of Salcombe. After mooring the yacht in Salcombe Harbour, head ashore to explore the local pubs and to plan the next day at sea with your crew mates. Perhaps you would prefer to heading west, where the beautiful and picturesque Cornish town of Fowey beckons you for your overnight stay aboard the yacht? Either way, whether you choose to head to Salcombe or Fowey, there are plenty of good reasons to complete your RYA sailing courses in Devon.

Our base location, King Point Marina in Plymouth, is conveniently located close to Plymouth mainline train station – less than 5-minutes away in a taxi. With private, clean and well-maintained showering facilities, this modern marina offers high-quality amenities for you to use. With local pubs and restaurants all within walking distance, it is an ideal location to begin your west-country based sailing adventures.

Rated as a 5-star sailing company on TripAdvisor, we are confident that you will have the best sailing experience available when you choose to take your RYA sailing courses in Devon with Devon Sailing Experiences.

For the comfort of all of our guests, our yachts are designated non-smoking to maintain their high-quality.
