One is an introduction to the
sport aimed to you afloat safely.
Level Two is about getting competent to handle a boat
by yourself in light winds.
We offer all levels of the scheme from novice
to racer trying to go faster. This year we will
be running half-day courses over each of the
main holiday weeks during Easter, Whitsun and
The real changes in the scheme come at Level
3, now called better sailing. The aim is to bridge the gap between level 2 and the advanced modules. We try to use a variety of boats and maximise time on the water which should give your greater confidence to sail without the instructor on board in light and moderate winds.
Advanced modules These
courses are designed to run over two days,
we are happy to run them over five half
days which should give a better range
These remain at the core. They should
enable you to handle your boat in a variety
of conditions and solve problems afloat.
Day Sailing :
This is a new strand designed to equip
you with the skills and knowledge needed
to take your boat cruising.
Start Racing :
Are you the competitive type? Start racing
will give you enough knowledge to join
in with your local club racing. It's the
first step of the Olympic ladder!
Sailing with Spinnakers :
As the name suggests this course is about getting
the most out of all 3 sails on your boat. It
covers either symmetric or asymmetric spinnakers.
Performance Sailing :
This is the adrenalin rush end of the sport.
The course can be taken in your own boat or
one of ours. Getting the most out of these boats
requires special techniques: the coaching on
this course should help you master them, stay
upright and blast off! A full season's experience would be the recommended minimum before taking this course.
