Welcome to Plymouth Sailing School

Plymouth Sailing School was set up in 1957 and is one of the UK’s longest established sea schools with only a couple of changes of owner, and a recent resurrection of our old RYA Training name of Plymouth Sailing School and Plymouth Powerboating. We are proud of our reputation for safety conscious fun and professionalism. We work hard to accommodate all of our customers requirements from the complete beginner to the Professional Yachtmaster.

We hope that you can find the information you require on the website but if you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email; school@plymsail.co.uk. For our address and a map of how to find us, please visit our Contact Us page.
