RYA Dinghy Instructor Courses - Just £250
Now you can handle the boat on your own in moderate conditions, the intermediate courses concentrate on improving boat-handling skills as both helm and crew and problem solving afloat.
The perfect course for recreational sailors as this forms a good grounding for sailing in more difficult conditions and is great preparation for the advanced modules.
