Sailing and Power Boat Training at Reading

Learning how to use sailing and power boats with Reading Sailing Club is a fun and rewarding experience. Set in a safe and picturesque environment and led by enthusiastic volunteer instructors our trainees gain recognised qualifications and a real sense of achievement. All of our instructors are RYA qualified.
