Frequently asked questions

When do you run these courses?

This course is on either a Friday or a Sunday. There are 3 lots of 4 week courses run throughout the year, April/May, June/July and Sept/Oct. All in the school term time. Pre-booking is essential.

What is Ladies Who Launch?

This is a ladies only sailing course. It is set at a cheaper rate to get local ladies on the water and keep them there.

What kind of ages are on the Ladies Who Launch courses?

This normally attracts an age range of approximately 30 - 60 years. We also have our Silver Sailors for those who would like to go with others more similar in age range. Silver Sailors attracts an age range of approximately 55 - 75 years and will mainly be done in keelboats. Please contact us if you have any questions or doubts as to which groups may be more appropriate for you.

Can I just pay a deposit to secure my booking?

At the checkout you have the option to either pay in full or click on 'Klana' which is a free payment instalment platform where you can spread the payments.

I gained my Levels 1 and 2 a few years ago, do I have to start again?

If you have had quite a long time since you have been on the water then depending on how long this period is, we will either have to start again or blow out a few cobwebs to refresh your skills. It is probably best to call to discuss so that we can advise you the best course to sign up to. You may be able to just book a half day 1:1 session and we can get you up to scratch. Or we may start you on the Level 1 course as a refresher and see how things go

Where do I park?

We are located on a large quay which is also a car park. We have free passes for the car park and so you just come and get one as soon as you arrive.

What if it's really windy?

During the 4 week course we allow for 1 of these sessions to cover essential other aspects of the syllabus ashore. If we then encounter another week with adverse conditions, we will cancel this and tag another session on the end of the 4 week block. We will always let you know if the session is not going ahead

If it rains will it still be on?

Yes, we still go sailing in the rain. Most of the time you are going to get wet anyway! We provide all wetsuits for the smaller wet boats and waterproofs for the larger, drier boats to keep you as comfortable as possible. We also provide all the safety equipment.

What do I need to bring?

We provide all the clothing and equipment you will need. If you are going in a smaller boat then you will get wet. Here at Mylor Sailing School we have plenty of wetsuits for all ages and sizes. If you are going in a dryer boat then we will provide waterproof jackets and trousers to go over your clothing. The only thing we do not provide is footwear so you will need to bring something that you don’t mind getting wet, like wetsuit shoes or trainers. If you are wearing a wetsuit you will also need to bring your bathing suit for underneath this and a towel. This will all be explained in your booking confirmation once you have confirmed your booking.

Do I need to wear a helmet?

It is the policy of Mylor Sailing School for all beginners to wear helmets. Once adults have completed their Level 2 and their skills are current we start to take the helmets off. If however, you are going from a double handed dinghy into a single handed dinghy for the first time, the boom is much lower so we do like you to wear helmets whilst you're getting used to this.

I cannot swim, is that ok?

Yes this is absolutely fine. You will always be wearing either a buoyancy aid or a life jacket that will keep you floating if you do enter the water. We normally ask this question on the booking form but it is just for our instructors information.

How many people on a course?

There may be between 3 - 6 people on the Level 2 course.
