Fairlands Valley Sailing Centre is recognised as a training centre by the Royal Yachting Association British Canoe Union and British Rowing. Our fleet consists of Wanderers, Wayfarers, Comet Duos, Toppers, Oppies, Laser, Laser Picos, RS Feva, Visions and Teras, windsurfers for training and hire. Our paddle sport and rowing equipment consists of Prijon/Piranha Kayaks, Grummond Canoes and Edon single sculls (TS515). Courses are available throughout the year.

All of our courses are staffed by friendly, qualified instructors. Their aim is to ensure that you enjoy the courses and learn in a safety and fun environment. Once you’ve attended a course to master the basics, you can either hire or launch your own sailing dinghy, windsurfer, scull or canoe, to a maximum length of 4.267m (14ft).
