The Centre is a specialist RYA Training Centre located on Cardiff Bay Barrage in Cardiff Bay. The Centre was originally located in at Llanishen Reservoir on the northern outskirts of Cardiff. The centre offers Sailing, Windsurfing, Powerboat and shorebased (i.e. First Aid & VHF) courses. Cardiff Sailing Centre has been teaching people to sail for over 40 years and has established a strong reputation for its water sports activities. Originally set in the beautiful surroundings of Llanishen Reservoir, the centre currently operates in Cardiff Bay. The centre is the ideal learning venue for all abilities of sailors, from the beginner to more advanced water sport enthusiasts. Certified by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA), Cardiff Sailing Centre is a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) training centre an RYA Sailability Centre and an RYA OnBoard Centre.
