Sailing

With its huge stretch of glorious coastline, it is no surprise that the English Riviera is a sailing hotspot. From sailing schools, international competitions and chartered boats, sailing has become a key attraction in the Torbay region. Whether looking to experience sailing for the first time, undertake an RYA course or enjoy an adventure break, visitors come from far and wide to enjoy the unique sailing holidays in Torquay and its surrounding area.

Learning to sail

For those new to the seas, there is no better place to learn to sail than amongst the spectacular surroundings and celebrated shores of the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay. There is a superb selection of RYA-recognised sailing schools located in Brixham and Torquay that offer first class instruction and affordable sailing experiences. Trained by skilled and fully qualified teachers, students will receive first-hand sailing practice, tuition in navigational techniques and the opportunity to discover Devon's most beautiful spots.

Take to the waters

For visitors looking to explore Torbay from the waters, there are a multitude of sailing trips leaving from Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, all of which give visitors the opportunity to discover hidden coves, stunning cliff faces and the natural coastal wildlife. If you’re lucky you might even get a glimpse of the wild dolphins and seals that dwell off the English Riviera shores. As well as sailing trips there are also many other waterside activities available including deep-sea fishing, scuba diving, jet-skiing and wind-surfing.
