Whether just starting out with little or no experience, or seeking to improve sailing skills, we have something for you.
We run Adult training sessions (from 18yrs upwards -there is no upper age limit), free of charge to members, providing you with high quality training from experienced RYA instructors with the aim to:
Introduce you to sailing:
o Mono hulls -single handed and double handed
Improving your boat handling skills
Teach you up to RYA level 3
This also means that you do not need to buy a boat to begin with.
Our club boats are free to use for our trainees, including for those wishing to start racing too.
This will also give you an opportunity to decide which boat is best suited to your needs.
Once basic skills have been acquired and having mastered rigging, launch, recovery, and sailing around a triangle, capsize recovery and safety knowledge, the next step is to sail regularly and improve handling skills.
This will lead to developing confidence, acquiring new skills and increasing competence both in dinghy handling and racing.
This will also open up opportunities to join in the social sailing at the club, meet and get to know other members.
Done all that? Then why not consider joining the instructor pathway.
We can take you further to develop your basic seamanship skills and who knows but you may want to put something back and become an assistant Instructor leading on to becoming a RYA Dinghy Instructor.
