RYA Start Sailing Level 1 Course


The RYA Start sailing Level 1 is one of our most popular courses.

This is for adults and children, with a ration of 1:6.

During the 2 day course you'll learn the theory, land drills and then put that into practice on the water. This course is mostly on the water. By the end of the two days you'll be able to sail around a triangular course using all the points of sail as well as a small amount of theory.

The RYA recommends following this course up with the RYA Level 2 Basic skills, most centres require the level 2 to hire a dinghy.
