Adult Level 1 and 2 – Start Sailing & Basic Skills 2018
This four-day intensive course follows the same content and format of the two-day Level-1 and Level-2 courses.

Level-1: Start Sailing

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.

Level-2: Basic Skills

In addition to capsize recovery, knots and safety aspects, we will refine your sailing skills and introduce you to some additional techniques and manoeuvres. You will develop the skills and confidence to sail proficiently and make your own decisions in light to medium winds. Following on from this course, you will be able to hire the club boats or join our Saturday club-coaching session to gain more experience.
