RYA Level 1 (Start Sailing) Course

The course is designed with the complete beginner in mind and will make an ideal introduction to the world of dinghy sailing.

We will teach level 1 of the RYA National Sailing Scheme in an interesting and enjoyable programme of theoretical and practical instruction.

On completion of the course, the successful sailor will be safety conscious, have a basic knowledge of sailing and be capable of sailing without instruction in light winds.

Training will take place in the clubs training boats, primarily RS Visions and GP14s, large double handers that are well suited to training.

Safety equipment, buoyancy aids will be provided but sailing is a watersport so please come prepared to get wet with at least a change of clothing and a towel.

For those 12-16 years old
At the same time as the above course we will also be running a Junior course following the RYA junior stage 1 & 2 sailing scheme.  The emphasis will be on an introduction to dinghy sailing, safety and having fun.

Both courses will be delivered by RYA qualified instructors or assistant instructors.
