Why choose a youth dinghy intermediate sailing course?

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 as well as an introduction to race skills.

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. 

What will I learn?

RYA Seamanship Skills (2 days Monday - Tuesday) - the course will focus on launching and recovering the boat in different circumstances, stopping, reducing sail, recovering a man overboard and anchoring. 

After the course you be more able to handle a wide range of situations afloat. 

RYA Start Racing (2 days Wednesday - Thursday) - the course will focus on the basics of racing including race starts, course etiquette, mark rounding and theory of getting around a course quickly.

Course duration

2 days per module. For intermediates who want to achieve their RYA Seamanship and RYA Start Racing then you can book onto both of the 2-day modules.
