Learning to sail at Loch Venachar Sailing Club is fun. Set in the beautiful Trossachs Loch Venachar is a safe and picturesque environment. The courses are led by enthusiastic volunteer instructors and our trainees gain recognised qualifications.
Our courses cater for beginners, intermediate and specialist racers. All training is given in club boats by fully qualified instructors. If you have your own boat you can use that, subject to a safety check and suitability.
The training is centred on our club house with hot showers and club facilities.
On successful completion, students gain an internationally recognised RYA qualification.
The training is delivered by volunteers and is intended as a way of encouraging new joiners to the club and giving you a way to start sailing.

- Topper: The ideal learning boat for juniors
- Wayfarer: A spacious two handed sail boat taking up to three trainees and an instructor.
