Welcome to Shell Bay Sailing

Learn to sail in a beautiful environment.
Learn to sail in the beautiful, protected waters of Poole harbour

We are a small, friendly sailing school, situated on the Studland peninsula, at the entrance to Poole harbour, close to the southern side of the Sandbanks ferry.

Shell Bay Sailing is an RYA recognised training centre.

We offer:

Location

We have direct access to the quiet and protected waters of Poole harbour. When afloat you will enjoy a beautiful sailing area bounded by the unspoilt shores and islands of the harbour, well away from the busy waterways.

We are open every weekend for hire and tuition from April to September, and daily during school holidays.

We can also arrange tailored tuition outside these times

We have spaces on the adult RYA level 2 courses on 11th/12th June and 9th/10th July.

And also on RYA level 1 courses on 28th/29th May and 25th/26th June.

There are still spaces available on our summer children's courses.
