Anchorage RYA Sea School

A Sailing School is only as good as it's instructors and at the Anchorage RYA Sea School we guarantee that you will sail with the Instructor of your choice.

All our Instructors have attended more RYA instructor updates than they care to remember and have probably taught the Instructors that other schools use.

 Our Principal, Tony Agar, learnt to sail on Cheddar Reservoir as a teenager before progressing to borrowing the company Motor Yacht whilst working in the Retail Motor Trade. However it was not until he moved to Weston-Super-Mare and purchased his own yacht that he realised the importance of learning navigation as the Bristol Channel has the second highest range of tide in the world!

After 5 years campaigning on various RORC yachts, Tony became an instructor for Sunsail in 1996 and later with the UKSA. At the same time, as continuing to deliver both motor and sailing yachts throughout the Atlantic, Europe and the Caribbean under his own name.

Tony started the Anchorage Sea School as a shorebased establishment to continue his keen interest in Celestial Navigation before joining with the others in offering the entire range of RYA practical courses.
