RYA Stage 1,2,3 or 4 training delivered over a full week, booking early is essential.  No experience is necessary to book onto the Stage 1 course; Stage 1 is required to book onto Stage 2 and Stage 2 is required to book onto Stage 3.

What is the course?

After a weeks boating and theory you will be more confident and able when sailing a dinghy in light to moderate conditions. Exactly what you will do will be dependent upon the course you are taking. Those going for their Stage 1 will spend their week in the bigger boats with an instructor onboard, those on the Stage 2 course are likely to be in Pico's and Stage 3 candidates are likely to be in lasers or Feva's.

What should I bring?

In essence you will need, clothes for the shore, clothes for sailing, your logbook and a way to make notes etc. It is always colder on the water than on land and you may be wet for many hours so make sure you have enough. A full kit list is available here:

Please bring the following items to your course. 

  • Lunch, water and snacks.  Light refreshments will be available during bar hours. Water and snacks may be taken afloat with you or in the coach boat.  
  • Pen and paper. 
  • Your logbook if you have one. 
  • Buoyancy Aid if you have one. 
  • Hat (cap or winter warm) 
  • Sunscreen 
  • Sunglasses (with retainer)
  • Towel 
  • Dry change of clothes 
  • Old sneakers or water shoes.  Shoes must be closed toe and heel.  Flip flops are not allowed! 
  • Wetsuit or warm clothes and full waterproofs (you will get wet). 
  • Wind breaker or waterproof jacket 
  • Clothes appropriate for the weather of the day. It is much colder on the water so please dress over-warm, we can always put a layer in the coach boat. 

We strongly recommend that you bring a helmet. These can be found inexpensively online, alternatively, cycling helmets are great.

When and where do I need to be?

Please meet at the club in the training room (big blue double doors to the left of the main entrance).
