RYA Start Sailing Level 1
Re: Coronavirus Update
All double hander instructor in boat tuition with 2 students plus the instructor is currently suspended due to current social distancing and government guidelines.
All instructors will be teaching from a safety boat.
Start your dinghy sailing with us!
After a brief onshore introduction, you will go onto the water to familiarize sailing across the wind including tacking the boat. You will have an understanding of being able to tack, gybe, sail upwind, downwind and even understand what to do in a capsized recovery position. After the course, you should be able to sail around a triangle course on all points of sail, with a basic theoretical understanding of the five essentials.
We recommend that you take the “RYA Level 2 Basic Skills Course” which refines your sailing skills and you can then rent a boat from us. Once RYA Level 2 Basic Skills is successfully completed, you can now sail in light to moderate wind conditions.
Please Note: There needs to be a minimum of 2 participants, which is required to make this course guaranteed 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 2 participants. Please do get in touch with the office at Hello@usailbda.com
2 Days or split into multiple sessions (16 Hours)

“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.”
