This provides an opportunity for youngsters, usually aged 7-12 years, to get a first taste of sailing. As well as gaining confidence and learning to sail under carefully controlled and safe conditions, they make many new friends. Most first time participants will achieve an RYA Stage 1 certificate; with the more experienced working towards achieving RYA Stage 2. The course is in Optimist, Tera and Topper dinghies that are supplied by the club, or in your child’s own boat (has to be one of these classes).

This is the first sailing course for teenagers (16+) and adults with little or no experience. You will have the opportunity to sail both in crewed boats with an instructor on board, and on your own in single-handed dinghies. In 2 days you will learn how to rig, launch & recover a dinghy, the basics of boat handling on the water and gain knowledge of capsize recovery, rules of the road, rope-work, weather & wind awareness. On completion of the course you should be capable on the water in light winds with supervision and safety cover.
