More course information
Normally done over 5 x half days but can be done in 2 full days. For ages 8 – 10 though we would recommend the 5 x half days due to attention span and tiredness. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you cannot see your desired dates on the electronic calendar, as we can easily add them to it.
On completion of this level you will be able to competently launch and sail a boat round a triangle in light to medium winds. Fruther technical manouevres including coming alongside, picking up moorings, man over board etc.
RYA Youth Stage 3 will also include mastering the capsize recovery. Building confidence on each session and really thinking about how a sail works and understanding the wind. Stages 3 and 4 tend to take a little longer to complete than Stages 1 and 2. The RYA Youth Stages are designed for sailors to be ‘working towards’ each stage, ticking off sections as they go.
Come and join us in our Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty in Falmouth, Cornwall.
