Adult Level 1 – Start Sailing 2017
An introduction to sailing in one of our larger (2-3 person) dinghies (2000 or Stratos). You will have an instructor on-board teaching you how to steer, control the boat’s speed, turn around and sail in all directions. We will also cover rigging, knots, launching and recovering a dinghy, and basic safety aspects.  We recommend that you follow this with the Level 2 course to consolidate your skills and gain confidence.
