This is a very frequently asked question! Yes of course, this is what we are here for! Around 60% of our customers are absolute beginners. If you have any apprehensions at all then please contact us and we will endeavour to put your mind at rest.

What do I need to bring?

We provide all the clothing and equipment you will need. You just need to wear plenty of warm clothing and we provide the wet weather trousers and jackets. Also all safety equipment. The only thing we do not provide is footwear so you will need to bring something that you don’t mind getting a bit wet due to either rain or spray. For your footwear you will need either deck shoes/trainers or wellies This will all be explained in your booking confirmation once you have confirmed your booking.

How many people in a group?

For Powerboat Courses the maximum in a group would be 3 people plus the instructor. You may request either 1:1 or 2:1 tuition, costs will be adjusted for this.

I have a physical impairment/health condition can I learn to powerboat?

Yes yes yes!! Of course you can. Depending on the nature of your need we have a couple of boats, well trained staff and lots of great equipment to make this all possible. This includes a wheelchair friendly powerboat where the front flaps down to board with ease. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any specific questions. Please read our Access Statement at the footer of this site for further access information.

If it rains will it still be on?

Yes, we still go ahead with the training in the rain. We provide waterproofs to keep you as comfortable as possible. We also provide all the safety equipment.

Do I have to wear a buoyancy aid/life jacket?

Yes, due to the usual regulations, everybody that is going afloat will need to wear either a buoyancy aid or a life jacket for safety reasons. If you prefer to wear your own, we will just need to check it over to make sure it meets the required safety regulations.

Where can I park?

Mylor Sailing School is situated in a car park on Admiralty Quay. This is a Pay and Display car park but we have FREE passes so you just need to come and get one as soon as you arrive. At peak times, parking maybe a little tricky, if you are having trouble finding a space then just come and see us and we can block in some of the staff cars.

Is sailing and powerboating sustainable/environmentally friendly?

All RYA recognised centres are members of The Green Blue incentive. We endeavour to pass on and educate all of our candidates with this mindset. The Green Blue is a UK wide programme created by British Marine and the Royal Yachting Association in 2005 to enable the UK recreational boating sector to decrease its impact on the environment by:
RYA Green Blue sustainability scheme
Raising awareness amongst industry and users
Reducing harmful discharges
Reducing environmental disturbance
Encouraging sustainable choices

Mylor Sailing School is also a member of Surfers Against Sewage’s (SAS) 250 business club which is part of a network driving forward a movement for change to protect the UK’s unique coastal environment.
