RYA Level 1 Dinghy Sailing
A Level 1 course is two day (16hr) course providing an introduction to dinghy sailing. At the end of the course you will have had an introduction to the sport of sailing.
RYA Level 2 Dinghy Sailing
Successful completion of an RYA Level 2 Course means that you have demonstrated that you can sail safely in light wind conditions (up to force 3) and are aware of the safety procedures involved in dinghy sailing.
This is two day (16hr) course, which follows on from the Level 1 Course.
RYA Dinghy Seamanship Course
The RYA Seamanship Module is designed to improve your sailing skills and improve your competence so that you can tackle stronger winds and more involved situations. Whilst the course can be taken immediately following a Level 2 Course, we recommend that you consolidate your experience by doing some independent sailing before doing this course.
