Tankerton Bay Sailing Club - Kent

Improve your sailing skills

This 2-day RYA Level 2 course is designed as a follow on from the Level 1 course and it is assumed that each student starting this course has already mastered the practical skills and absorbed the background knowledge required for Level 1. On completion of this course you will have a basic knowledge of sailing and be capable of sailing independently in light winds.

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.

Duration 2 full days (approx. 16 hours)
