Windsurfing Courses

Windsurfing is a thrilling and energetic sport that combines elements of surfing and sailing.  It’s easy, great fun and we aim to have you windsurfing across the water confidently during your course.

All our courses follow the RYA syllabus – a tried and tested formula to get you on the water as quickly and as safely as possible but giving you time to ask questions and take in everything, including the fantastic location.  The courses are a mix of land-based simulator sessions, on-water demos and personal coaching however the majority of the time is spent on the water windsurfing!

You do not need to be a Club member to take part in any of courses.  We will provide the kit (board, wet suit, buoyancy aid), and we just ask that you bring swimwear, footwear that will get wet and changing items.

For ages 16+

3 Month Membership

On completion of an RYA course at Draycote (not taster sessions or refresher days), we offer a 3 month temporary membership to give you an opportunity to try the Club and its facilities and to continue developing your new skills.  The trial membership includes access to our Adult Improver Sessions plus 5 board hire & kit tokens.  Our instructors will speak to you about this offer at the end of your course. 

Improver Sessions

The key to successful windsurfing is to keep practising the skills you have learnt from your RYA course.

Course attendees can join our Improvers Sessions on Sunday afternoons through the summer.  Although not formal coaching, an instructor will be on hand to answer questions and give advice.
