Learn to Sail
GYC is the ideal place to learn to sail in London!
We are a Royal Yachting Association accredited Training centre and can help you go from complete beginner to racing one of our club dinghies, crewing on a members cruiser down the Thames or sailing your own boat across oceans!
If you have never sailed before, we would suggest you take the Dinghy RYA Level 1 course and get involved with our dinghy fleet - but first you need to Join the Club
