You can learn to sail or windsurf anywhere in the UK. Take a course – learn the basics on an RYA Level 1 Dinghy course, or a RYA Start Windsurfing course at a RYA-recognised training centre.. There are RYA-recognised training centres based on rivers, lakes, reservoirs and, of course, on the coast.  Alternatively, you can head abroad for training! 

Kit and safety equipment will be provided by the training centre whilst you are learning and can advise you on what kit to buy if you choose to continue. If you do, here are a few things you should expect.

Dinghy: Many clubs have dinghies and boards that you can use or you can sail with the other club members on their boats. If you buy your own dinghy, think about what you want to use it for: racing or just for fun, and if you want to sail solo or with others.
