Why choose a youth dinghy improver sailing course?

Now you have mastered the basics, it’s time to progress to the next RYA course. Improver courses are all about consolidating your previously learnt skills and preparing for the intermediate course. These courses will give you the confidence to go out and sail a boat on your own and prepare you for even buying your own boat. 

What will I learn?

RYA Stage 3 (2 Days Monday - Tuesday) - the course will focus on rigging, launching and recovery, sailing techniques, capsize recovery and sailing theory.

After the course you be able to launch & sail a dinghy around a triangle in moderate conditions. 

RYA Stage 4 (2 Days Wednesday - Thursday) - the course focuses on launching and returning to a beach, jetty or mooring, and sailing a crewed dinghy around a triangular course in moderate conditions.

After the course you will be able to launch & sail a dinghy around a triangle in moderate conditions.
