RYA Safety Boat Course
Re: Temporary Coronavirus (covid-19) update
We are temporarily suspending all RYA Safety boat courses until further notice as we do not believe that the current local government guidelines can be maintained.
Please still get in touch to register your interest when the Bermuda Government guidelines do change in the near future.
This 2 day RYA Safety Boat Course provides you with the skills and techniques when acting as an escort craft, safety boat or coach boat to recover dinghies, windsurfers, foilers and training and racing activities. You know how to recover canoes, kayaks and kite surfers. You will learn techniques for towing, end of day procedures, safety and types of suitable craft, local factors and rescuing other water users. It is a useful course, if you want to assist with safety cover or mark laying at your club. It is a pre-requisite for the RYA Senior Instructor course.
Please Note: There needs to be a minimum of 3 participants, which is required to make this course guarantee to run.
If your preferred date is not available, we can arrange a date and time to your liking but we do require a minimum of 3 participants. Please do get in touch with the office at Hello@usailbda.com.

“Great sailing center in a beautiful location and with amazing instructors and friendly team, I highly recommend!”
“5 star to U Sail Bermuda. Great place to learn to sail. I’ve received my RYA Dinghy Level 2 certificate. Affordable rates for the weekend Learn to Sail for both Level 1 and Level 2. I am a pure beginner, so I like how they are in Harrington Sound with minimal boat traffic and it’s really just me trying to figure out where the wind is. They are all about safety so- someone is overlooking the water watching with a safety boat ready to go if required when you do boat hire (like I did after I’ve received my Level 2). Looking forward to hiring paddleboards and doing some windsurfing lessons with them. Overall, always received great service. All the instructors are very personable- Naphali, Donavin, Jonny and Thomas- Thank you for letting me achieve one of my bucket list.”
"Our group of 6 ladies had a fabulous time on an introductory course. Just great fun, learned lots but also had lots of giggles. The U Sail team were fabulous. I’m hooked!"
“Had 2 fabulous mornings of WASZP foiling lessons with Aaron, learned a ton and had a fabulous time. I can't say enough great things about U Sail Bermuda, wonderful staff, great service, beautiful location on Harrington Sound, and the boats are in top condition with plenty of spares if things break. I'll be definitely be booking more sessions the next time we're in Bermuda.”
“Great session learning to windsurf so much fun!!! Defo coming back for more!! Great instructor & team!!”
“This is such a fun way to get on the water and sail, just for fun! We had three generations out on the water together, laughing the whole time. Excellent team, and a surprisingly affordable price.”
