Three-day Dinghy Instructor Course using single-handers only.
The temporary adjustment to the Dinghy Instructor Course will be a split of the course into two parts:
Part 1: A three-day Dinghy Instructor Course using single-handers only and including a moderation. This part is deliverable now.
Part 2: Two day, 'top up’ instructor training course in double-handers, un-moderated. This part can only be delivered once restrictions are eased.
These remain unchanged. The course should only be offered to those who already hold the pre-requisites:
First Aid Certificate
PB Level 2 Certificate*
RYA Safe and Fun course completion and certificate*
*No action plans should be set to gain these after the course.
To be completed in single handed dinghies only. Dinghies such as Pico, Zest, Topper, Lasers and Fevas (if sailed single handed) would be acceptable.
The pre-entry assessment needs to provide a clear picture of the candidate’s boat handling ability. This can be achieved by using the following techniques:
Tight circles (tacking and gybing)
Triangle course, demonstrating the 5 Essentials and stopping skills
Picking up a mooring
Follow my leader
Adaptation of MOB, using a free-floating buoy or similar
Rigging, launching, recovery and de-rigging.
Part 1 Temporary Dinghy Instructor Course Single-handed endorsement. 0900 -1730
Discussion topics: (5 minute shore based interactive group presentations or discussions. Outside weather permitting.)
