Note: The Senior Learn to Sail program for 2016-17 is now full. If you are interested in learning to sail please contact us to place you name on a waiting list in case a spot opens up or for next season's course which will commence in November 2017.
Designed for adults 16 years and over, this course consists of nine practical sessions on Sunday mornings as well as a pre-course theory session which is conducted on the Thursday prior to the course commencing.
Additional Sunday morning coaching sessions after the formal course are scheduled for participants until the end of March to further their sailing skills and to introduce them to racing.
The course is conducted in BYC owned two person Pacer dinghies. Initially participants are teamed up with instructors who skipper the boats until they are comfortable to take control themselves. As skills develop two participants sail the boats together.
This course is suitable for most ages however a basic level of physical fitness is desirable.
Participants must be able to swim.
