beginners course
This course is an ideal introduction to sailing with no previous experience required at all. All equipment is provided, including Boats and Lifejackets.
The course is aimed at complete beginners and by the end, you will be a competent helmsman of a sailing dinghy. You will be able to launch and sail the boat to a good standard and to judge such things as weather conditions and safety for you and your crew. A full capsize drill is also included in the course.
At the start, it is aimed at beginners, but the course takes you from that to an introduction of racing towards the end of the course. The course offers excellent instruction by experienced sailors.
Our beginners course is an annual event which has taken place for many years now and has always been a success, with many of the beginners staying on in the club to enjoy racing or just sailing their own boat.
The next course will start in April 2017.
