Welcome to RAFSA (Dinghy) Training

Our courses introduce and develop individuals to be safer and more confident on the water. By increasing knowledge more satisfaction can be gleaned from the sport. We aim to give individuals the skills to go on the water to build and gain experience.

COVID-19 Suspension

We hope to be able to resume a full 2021 programme from July 21, in line with government and RYA guidance. Please apply as normal. If the course is cancelled or if you cannot attend due to COVID-19 after booking we will refund the course in full. Membership will not be refunded.

Our Courses

Dinghy sailing is fun and provides a physical and mental challenge. Contrary to popular belief, you don't necessarily need to get wet either!

All of our Courses are open to serving RAF Regular and Reserve personnel, veterans, RNSA, ASA Members and their dependents. We welcome novice and expert sailors alike and deliver a broad range of RYA qualifications, from beginner to instructor. Our corses are held at an RYA Recognised Training Centre at Rutland Water.
