About Us

HLSTC is proud to hold RYA recognition to teach Dinghy Sailing and Power-Boating within both the Adult and Youth Schemes.

The RYA (Royal Yachting Association) is the National Governing Body for many water-sports in the UK including Sailing, Windsurfing and Power-Boating.  The RYA is committed to ensuring that all of its Recognised Training Centres (RTCs) provide high standards of tuition, equipment and facilities. Quality is maintained through annual inspections to ensure these standards are met.

The popularity of our Youth courses has gone from strength to strength and certainly contributes to our position as a leading RYA Training Centre in this area.  Our reputation is built on our extremely safe and beautiful setting combined with our ability to deliver top quality tuition.  Whether you are a complete beginner or looking to develop more advanced skills, we have the boats and the expertise to suit.  Courses are split into three age groups so we can best meet your needs.

Hawley Lake is open to all and we provide many different services, so please browse the website to find out more about membership and other activities.
