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.
By the end you will be a competent helm 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.
The course takes absolute beginners quickly through the basics to introduction of racing towards the end of the course.
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 2018 and will run until the beginning of September. It runs every Thursday evening starting at 6.30.
