Youth Beginner Course – RYA Stage 1 & 2 2017
On this course you’ll go from beginner to confident sailor in almost no time! The course includes basic sailing skills and background knowledge like launching and landing, steering, naming parts of the boat, knots and collision avoidance. There will be a mixture of practice exercises, fun games and wacky races, and there is a high chance that you will get very wet at some point! By the end of the course you will be able to steer, turn the boat around (tack), control the boat’s speed and return to shore safely. Our Saturday afternoon ‘Team Grafham’ sessions provide the ideal next step.
