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 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.

We are now closed for the winter and reopen in April 2016.

We will be running adult courses starting in April, and our popular children's courses will run during the school holidays.

Please contact us by phone or email if you would like further details.
