This weekend is aimed at improving your technical sailing ability  and will be run in our double handed dinghies. 

Seamanship Skills: The emphasis of this course is on increasing the self-reliance and decision-making of the sailor, by spending time developing your boat handling and manoeuvring skills in a seamanlike manner.  

Key learning points: coming alongside, man overboard recovery and reefing afloat. 


The Next Steps: This weekend will provide you with a solid foundation on which to develop your sailing independently. Once you feel confident in the skills you have learnt, consider the  RYA Sailing with Spinnakers weekend where you will have the opportunity to trsail using an asymmetric spinnaker.
