The RYA require the Pre Entry Assessment to be passed by all candidates prior to them taking the RYA Dinghy Instructor course. The 1 day Assessment will test your sailing skills up to RYA Advanced sailing level technique including RYA Seamanship Skills.
We also offer a practice on the Saturday prior to the assessment day on the Sunday or 5 day (Instructor Preparation Week) options which gives 4 days of practice and preparation prior to the assessment on the Friday. Any of the assessment courses can be booked with full board accommodation if required.
Sailing skills such as man overboard, sailing tight circles, sailing a triangular course and sailing a follow-my-leader course will be assessed to advanced sailing level technique. Successful completion will enable the student to join the RYA Dinghy Instructor course. It is important that you satisfy yourself that you can sail to the required standard before taking the assessment.
The assessment is for competent, experienced sailors who already hold the RYA advanced sailing modules or are at that level with excellent RYA Seamanship Skills. This course is offered at our Rockley Point centre, Poole.
