RYA Adult Beginners’ Courses: Level 1 & 2

At the core of our adult dinghy sailing training are the RYA Level 1 and Level 2 courses. Level 1 is for those who have never sailed before while Level 2 follows on from that to give you more skills and independence. Most people do the two together. Each are two-day courses and we run them from spring to autumn giving you the choice of formats: over two weekends, over four Saturdays or straight through from a Thursday to Sunday. This last one is also available for children provided they have a parent on the course as well.

This 4 day course introduces adults with little or no experience to the world of sailing. This practical course on the water, covers theory, safety, boat controls, points of sailing, capsize dinghy recovery, rules of the road, background knowledge and much more, guided by our team of both young and mature instructors at a maximum ratio of 6 trainees to 1 Instructor.

On satisfactory completion you will be awarded the RYA Dinghy Level 1 and/or 2 certificates and you will be competent to sail a dinghy safely in light to moderate winds. The fee includes the certificates, handbook and logbook.

Trainees and guests have temporary free membership while enjoying training or activities.
