2019 RYA Dinghy Instructor Courses - Just £250

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. These courses are offered at our Rockley Point centre, Poole and at our new centre based in Birmingham at Bartley Sailing Club (please refer to map).

What will I learn?

RYA Stage 3 (2 days) - 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) - 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. 

Course duration

2 days or for improvers who want to achieve their RYA Stages 3 & 4 then you can book onto two of the 2-day modules. For those who are staying with us on a residential basis, if you book two of our 2-day modules, why not book on to our 5-day residential option which includes our 'Friday FUN DAY' for just £500 inclusive. Residential courses are only offered at our Poole based centre - Rockley Point.
