Rival Sailing is a small RYA Training Centre operating in the beautiful Firth of Clyde (tidal). We provide a range of RYA Sail Cruising courses, from Start Yachting and Competent Crew to Day Skipper and Coastal Skipper, plus Yachtmaster preparation and ICC examinations. Our courses are delivered by an experienced RYA instructor aboard legendary Rival 41C sail training yacht East End Endeavour.
In affiliation with INDI Skills we are able to offer RYA First Aid, VHF Radio (SRC) and Inland Waterways Helmsman courses as well as the International Certificate of Competence (CEVNI) examination.
Rival Sailing also provides informal sailing activities, from introductory day sails to skippered charter cruises, informal practical sailing tuition (own boat or aboard EEE) and mile-builder passages to the Scottish Hebrides, Ireland and beyond for sailors looking to build up sea miles and practical experience.
We advertise a series of courses and informal sailing activities each year, but if you have other preferred dates please check our website calendar for availability and contact us.
