RYA Onboard

The RYA OnBoard scheme

At Snettisham Beach we are very keen to encourage young people (8-15yr olds) to try sailing through the RYA OnBoard scheme. It provides the perfect chance to have a go at this exciting sport in small groups.

The sessions involve learning all the basics you need to know to sail a boat, we provide the instructors, boats, spray tops & buoyancy aids, and most importantly a fun way of learning and getting wet! All you have to do is bring your child along with old clothes to sail in, including footwear (old trainers are fine), a towel and some dry warm clothes to go home in.

Courses run in 6 week blocks and are suitable for complete beginners. A six week block costs £80.

Courses run on Sunday mornings from June onwards. Dates and times of each 6 week block is listed below:


09:30-12:00 on Sundays:  4/6, 11/6, 18/6, 25/6, 2/7, 9/7
09:30-12:00 on Sundays: 13/8, 20/8, 27/8, 3/9,10/9, 17/9











Entry is open to all wanting to learn to sail aged 8 - 15 years (no membership required)
