Adult training is available at various times during the year covering RYA National Sailing Scheme Levels 1, 2, 3 and Progressive Skills. There are three separate courses; the first for two full Saturdays, the second comprising of a full Friday and full Saturday and the third over a series of Wednesday evenings and two full days during the normal working week. Please only book onto a course if you can attend all sessions. Novice adults are generally taught in the Club's double-handed Club GP14's, with one RYA qualified instructor allocated to two candidates, subject to availability. More experienced sailors may be taught in other boats, depending on ability and availability.
Race training is aimed at adults and juniors who want to improve their racing skills. You should be a competent sailor who has the sailing skills equivalent to an RYA National Sailing Scheme Level 2 certificate, or RYA Youth Sailing Scheme Stage 3 certificate, (you need not have taken an RYA course). Adults will generally race in the Club GP14's, Juniors will use their own boat or a Club Topper. Training is on eight Sunday mornings from May to July and consists of both theory sessions and practical exercises on the water, plus one evening theory session. The RYA National Sailing Scheme 'Start Racing' certificate may be awarded if candidates have met the required standard. Please note that Juniors should be aged 12 and above for this course (younger sailors may be accepted at the discretion of the Club Racing Coach).
