RYA Dinghy Start Sailing and Basic Skills

Get going with us

Adult beginners’ courses

Our training sessions are run over 3 Saturdays with the majority of time on the water and one Wednesday evening land-based (around 16 hours total). Dependent on your ability you will achieve Level 1 but we aim for Level 2. Unlike many training centres, we don’t insist on you completing Level 1 followed by Level 2, we combine the two. Either way you will be ready to rig your own boat and sail after the course.

A RYA National Sailing Scheme Syllabus and Logbook is included with the course cost.

The maximum ratio of pupils to instructor is 6:1.

What will be covered in this course:

  • How to sail in all directions in good conditions
  • Launching and recovering
  • Rigging a dinghy
  • Sailing in all directions.
  • Capsize recovery
  • Essential safety knowledge
