About the centre

The centre holds Royal Yachting Association and British Canoeing approval as well as being licenced by the Adventurous Activities Licencing Authority. You can join in the sessions on a pay as you go basis or we offer an all inclusive annual membership, please contact us for more details. We run courses regularly throughout the year, but if you would like a course on a specific date we can put one together for you and two other people at the advertised price for the year. Whether you want us to provide a development programme, one off taster session or a multi activity day; FOAC can help. We have experienced and friendly staff that can provide assistance on GCSE Modules, BTEC sport courses, Duke of Edinburgh Awards, Scout badges and more. We are part of the RYA sailability scheme which encourage and support people with disabilities to take up the sport and facilitate sites to develop sailing opportunities.
