Start Sailing

If you are new to the sport, there is no better way to learn than a Level 1 Start Sailing course. This 2 Day Course covers all the essentials to get you off the beach and into a boat in no time. The course introduces a range of skills, from wind awareness, sail settings, basic sail controls, steering the boat and turning the boat with tacking and gybing.
Classes are taught on a instructor to student ratio of 1:6, allowing for hands on tuition. The course is primarily practical based, with some short theory sessions done ashore and afloat. This introductory course will set you up perfectly to continue your training and development in sailing.

Basic Skills

For those who have completed the Level 1 course, or have some boating experience in steering and controlling the boat, the Level 2 Basic Skills course is the next step. This 2 Day course is designed to build upon the skills introduced in Level 1 with an aim to increase a sailors confidence, and move towards sailing unassisted by an instructor.

Improving Skills

The Level 3 Improving Skills course requires a sailor to be of at least a Level 2 standard, and have been sailing regularly in the period before taking the course. This 2 Day course builds on the fundamental skills learned in Level 1 and 2, focusing on improving a sailors understanding of the 5 essentials of sailing, and applying them consistently while underway. The course places an emphasis on understanding some of the background theory of sailing, and using it in a way to increase the sailors efficiency.
