Aimed at complete novices aged from 8 up to 16, these four days of fun afloat will give your child a head start for some great summer sailing. They will learn how to rig and launch a small boat with help where needed, sail across the wind, including both tacking and gybing, and also experience capsize in a safe, controlled environment.

Assuming you/your child has already completed RYA Stage 2, and done some sailing since, this two day course is designed to allow you to sail a small single handed dinghy independently in any direction.
