RYA Courses in London and the Solent

Welcome to Nomad Sailing

Nomad Sailing is an RYA Recognised Training Centre offering practical sail training, sailing adventures and shorebased theory courses in London, Gosport and Online. We pride ourselves on putting the student/customer at the centre of what we do. Check out our Trip Advisor reviews to see what our students think.

May has so far shown us a mix of weather but it is definitely getting warmer so time to get out on the water. We have been very busy so far this season but do have availability from June for you to complete your RYA practical course or perhaps join our trip to The Channel Islands in late July 2024.

All of our sailing courses and trips are fully inclusive, we do provide 3 meals a day, we cater for all dietary requirements and we pay for all mooring fees, we guarantee no hidden extra costs. As a Nomad student you will not waste any time hunting down your breakfast, lunch and dinner, instead we use all our time learning and having fun.

RYA Practical Sailing Courses are available in the busy tidal waters of the Solent and will give you the hands on experience you need to sail in tidal waters. They cover the entire experience range from those new to sailing and wanting to give it try, through to experienced sailors looking for their Yachtmaster ticket. Our courses include Start Yachting, Competent Crew, Day Skipper, Coastal Skipper & Yachtmaster Preparation.

RYA Shorebased Theory Courses are available in various locations in London and now at our new shorebased training venue at Endeavour Quay (Gosport Marina). We offer evening classes in London and intensive courses at Gosport. These RYA theory courses include the Day Skipper Theory, Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Theory and the VHF SRC Radio course. From 2020 we will also be offering RYA First Aid and RYA Diesel Engine at our Gosport Centre. Should you wish to enquire about shorebased training delivery at your own venue please contact us.

Testimonials

Good pace to the course. We did a good mix of everything required - rote learning/practising of the day shapes and lights (with tricks to remember them), theory behind the weather, col regs and why they are how they are, etc. Jim has good tips on how to remember things so that it all sticks, and good teaching techniques to lead us through the different aspects of the course. The notes were also very comprehensive but concise.
A great sailing weekend with Nomad with bespoke training tailored around our specific requests. Very approachable, great fun, and super-flexible to adapt around what we wanted and the prevailing weather conditions. I've also done various RYA courses with Nomad which have all been great - THE place to go for Day Skipper, Comp Crew, Yachtmaster training whether on the water or in the classroom
Great skipper, great crew.
The safety briefing was particularly good. Crew welfare and importance of rest and food good. Monitoring of conditions and preparation, all sensible and impressive. I learnt a lot.
