Love an adventure in the fresh air? Then small boat sailing could be for you. You can take your family, go with friends or escape by yourself, leaving the stress of daily life behind on the shore.

People of all ages take up dinghy sailing and there are plenty of ways to get involved. You’ll quickly find sailing becomes more than just a sport because it’s so sociable.

Children as young as 6 years of age can learn to sail using our small dinghies, suitable for their size, easy to handle and generally light to launch and transport.

All our sailing is carried out in a variety of RS Sailing Dinghies. Our courses are run by RYA Qualified Senior Instructors and we ensure all safety equipment provided is maintained to a high standard.


Our Youth Saturday Sailing programme runs every Saturday from September to June and gives an excellent introduction to all abilities of sailers as well as refining existing skills for the more experienced.

The programme is run by the only female sailing instructor in Doha and is run in three groups starting at 8am and running until 3pm. The groups each have 2 hour sessions on the water, and is open to ages 6-16.
