What is a keelboat?

Keel boats are a step up in size from dinghies, more like a small yacht but generally not as big as a cruising yacht. They can bridge the gap between dinghies and cruisers, offering many benefits of both, to the adult beginner.

Our keelboat "Sprite" pictured above.

It can comfortably accomodate 4 adults + our instructor.  We have waterproof jackets and trousers if the forecast is "moist" but no need for wetsuits in this boat.  Bring clean non marking wellies or sea boots for your feet.

We use it to teach the RYA Keelboat courses, taster session or family / group sailing for fun.
