Tankerton Bay Training Centre.

Learn to Sail or Improve skills

In 2016 TBSC gained RYA Recognised Training Centre (RTC) status. This means that with our fleet of Toppers and Pico's, along with a team of fully qualified Instructors, we are able to run the full range of RYA accredited courses for dinghy's.
Then in 2017, with the help of some 'Sport England' funding, we were able to add a brand new RS Cat16 to the training fleet, which means we can also give the same training for multihulls.

Want to improve the skills you already have?

Open to club members only.
