 Start Sailing 1 is designed to provide a safe and enjoyable introduction to dinghy sailing for complete beginners. The course includes an introduction to fundamental boat handling skills and essential safety knowledge. Each student will receive a text book for study and log book for recording their time on the water.

Start Sailing 2 builds upon the experiences and knowledge gained in Start Sailing 1.

Better Sailing is designed to equip the sailor with enhanced skills and awareness of the surrounding environment.

The aim of the Start Racing course is to introduce dinghy sailors to basic competitive sailing. The course focuses on refining enhanced boat handling skills including speed control and manoeuvres. Introducing racing tactics and strategies.

The Better Racing course introduces sailors to using a compass and also to the concept of tuning your boat to enable them to be better at racing.
