Learn to sail a dinghy
This 2-day RYA Level 1 course provides a short introduction to sailing for novices. By the end of the course you will have a basic understanding of dinghy-handling techniques and background knowledge.
The course is carried out in single handed dinghies under the instruction of our RYA qualified instructors and a safety boat is in attendance at all times you are on the water. As well as plenty of sailing sessions there are some on-shore theory sessions too. This course is aimed at adults, but we will consider accompanied youth, so do ask if you would like to learn as a family.
