How To Get Started

Taking a RYA recognised course would be highly recommended to learn the basics of the sport in a safe environment. Contact RYA Northern Ireland to find your nearest sailing club or sailing school offering beginners courses.

Is It Easy?

The ability to swim is a necessity. A basic level of fitness coupled with a need for speed will see you a long way.

Is It Expensive?

If you are taking a course at a sailing school or sailing club the necessary equipment will be supplied. A second hand windsurfer can be purchased for less than £500, a roof rack for around £80, wet suits and buoyancy aids can be bought fairly cheaply – even well known supermarkets have them in stock.
