Welcome to Trysail RYA Training Centre, Yacht Charters and Deliveries Cornwall.

Trysail Cornwall


Trysail is a small, friendly RYA Training Centre and Yacht Charter business based in both Falmouth & Helston, Cornwall that prides itself on quality training and personal service.

The beautiful and sheltered cruising waters of the South Cornish Coast provide us with the perfect area in which to train and charter. 

Being one of the most southerly RYA training and charter centres on the UK mainland we enjoy a warmer climate and extended sailing season. We continue waterbased training into November and start again in early spring, with some of our best spells of fine weatherin the shoulder months.

When training, we explore the Cornish coast and harbours as well as visiting South Devon.  We also regularly schedule Mileage Building Cruises taking us further from the Cornish coastline to the Channel Islands, Brittany and the magical Isles of Scilly.

The quality of our service extends through our accredited, experienced, friendly instructors, training vessels (well found and proven boats that we LOVE to sail), to the fine food onboard.

Our well equipped shoreside training/office facility has 2 flexible classrooms, student lounge, kitchen facilites, book & snack shop.

Our instructors are relaxed, amiable and experienced both in the classroom and on the water. We believe learning should be fun and enjoyable so we try to make courses relaxed and informal.

Whatever your pace of learning you will be given the time to absorb the information at your own rate.
