New Members Sailing and Training Sessions
The New Members Club bridges the gap between the courses run by the Sailing School and club racing activities. It helps beginners and new members feel part of the club and meet other sailors.
The sessions are aimed at adults with basic sailing skills (RYA Level 1) and uses the facilities, equipment and club boats belonging to WSC. Sessions are open to all WSC members and are free. All sessions will start with a briefing in the Committee Room, at 14:30 on Sundays and 19:00 on Thursdays.

The Club's School, Harp Sailing School (HSS), teaches RYA Levels 1, 2 and Seamanship. We are a certified RYA Training Centre. Courses are run on two consecutive Sundays between 9am–5pm. We run eight courses per year with the first course starting in early April. We use the RS Vision dinghy for training, which is ideally suited with a reefed mainsail allowing us to sail in most wind conditions. Each boat has two trainees and a qualified RYA instructor. Buoyancy aids are provided and a safety boat is on standby throughout your time on the water.
Each course takes 14 students. Applicants who intend joining the club get priority on course places. Harp Sailing School is wholly owned by WSC.
