About the Scheme

Sailing is a fantastic and diverse sport, with activities to suit everyone.  The RYA National Sailing Scheme (NSS) has been designed to help you enjoy whichever aspect of the sport that appeals to you.  All the courses in the Scheme can be taken in a dinghy, keelboat or multihull so you can have tuition in whatever type of boat you wish.

The Right Sailing Course For You

The reputation of the RYA National Sailing Scheme has been built on high standards and good tuition.  As an RYA Training Centre, PPSA is no exception to this and leads the delivery of RYA Sailing Courses in SW Wales.  All the courses of the RYA National Sailing Scheme can be completed in just two days, or spread over a series of sessions covering a period of 16 hours.  PPSA can be flexible and can offer courses during the evenings or half-day sessions if required.

Start Sailing

An introduction to the sport, covering the minimum knowledge required to get afloat under supervision

Basic Skills

Developing the techniques to sail independently

Better Sailing

Consolidate basic skills, improving techniques and introducing the Advanced Modules

Direct Assessments

If you’re an experienced sailor you may wish to undertake a direct assessment of your skills rather than completing the entire 16 hour course.  You will be expected to carry out the criteria for the relevant course outlined in the RYA National Sailing Scheme Syllabus.  Each element will be signed off by an assessing instructor and the final declaration signed by the Chief Instructor

Becoming An Instructor

Once you’ve learnt to sail, you may be the sort of individual who relishes passing on your knowledge and skill to others so that they can enjoy the sport.  The RYA Instructor is an experienced sailor who has successfully completed a sailing test (the pre-entry test) and an instructor training course.  RYA Instructors should hold a first aid certificate and the RYA Powerboat Level 2 Certificate.
