RVYC Visitor Pontoons

From our very active Cadet section, Saturday Open Sailing, Adult Training Evenings, a wide range of RYA Training Courses, extensive Racing and Social Programme, Cruiser and Powerboat groups, we are sure you will find something to help get you on the water.
On Friday, our second bunch of lucky cadets rode with the Captain on the Bridge of Wightlink's St Cecilia. The cadets took full advantage of the opportunity, asking lots of technical questions and learning to spot hazards.
