The club is a fully recognised Royal Yachting Association (RYA) training centre and conducts a range of practical and shorebased courses for dinghies, powerboats and cruisers.

The club owns a fleet of dinghies including Teras, Picos and Fevas maintained to a high standard. The centrepiece is the junior dinghy sailing programme which operates five times a week between April and July, but the club offers courses for all ages from beginners to race training.
