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 holds a licence to operate from the Adventurous Activities Licensing Service and is an RYA recognised training centre.

We offer:


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.

Adult season ticket for improver sailors and recreation. Sail whenever we're open, including some evenings.

Contact us for details of adult courses running in September.
