Start Sailing - RYA Level 1
RYA Level 1 Dinghy Sailing Course
This is our standard starting point for everyone wanting to learn to sail further than in our taster sessions. Following this course you will be able to sail a course in light wind conditions under the supervision of someone more experienced.
If you don't know your tacks from your splices or your jibes from your starboard's then we can help you demystify sailing and get you on the right foot to start sailing. This course starts off assuming you have zero knowledge which is great even if you have tried sailing before as it will make sure you have all the base knowledge to get sailing.
During this course we aim to maximise water time, there is some theory associated with the syllabus, but we aim to teach this in an efficient manner.
