RYA Training and Courses

We are proud to be an RYA Training Centre.

Due to demand this year we are prioritising courses for club members

ON THE WATER COURSES

RYA Dinghy Courses

Dinghy Level 1 - Start Sailing: This is a 2 day course teaching all you need to know to launch, sail in all directions and recover your dinghy back on shore.

Dinghy Level 2 - Basic Skills: Following level 1, this is a 2 day course of further development, improving technique and skill.

Dinghy Level 3 - Better Sailing: This is a taster of the RYA Advanced Modules. We will cover Day Sailing, Spinnakers, Seamanship, Racing and Performance.

Dinghy Start Racing: Extend your sailing options and fun with this introduction to racing. Even if you never intend to race, this will help you to improve your sailing skils.

Dinghy Seamanship Skills: Here we help you to focus your attention on sailing with a partner as crew and helm in a crewed boat; learn to handle larger boats with main sail and jib, rigging, launching and recovery, as well as high level skills such as sailing tight circles and sailing rudderless.

Dinghy Sailing with Spinnakers: Step up a gear by learning how to safely get the most from these spectacular and large sails.
