Sailing is one of our nation's most popular sports and leisure activities, and it's easy to see why. The freedom, the adventure, the escape from it all - whether you choose sailing or motorboating, with crew or 1 to 1 with the elements, it's an experience that is hard to beat!

Our aim is to help you and your fellow sailors handle and navigate your craft well and safely. As you increase in competence you will be more confident on the water and get more from your chosen sport. Our passion for safe sailing covers all aspects of sailing and boat maintenance, and the principles are the same whatever your chosen craft and style of sailing.

We run our classes for all levels of ability, from the absolute beginner to those with more experience. We usually teach in small groups but can provide one to one training where required, or even larger groups. We run courses on weekdays, evenings, weekends - we aim to be as flexible as possible. We believe that learning should be fun, and many of our students develop good social relationships which continue after the training. But we take our role very seriously, as our student pass rate of 98% demonstrates.

Take the first step with one of our shorebased courses and see why people travel to PanPan Sailing School from all over the UK as well as from as far afield as Malta, Holland and even Tasmania! We hope to see you soon.
