Youth Evening Improver Sailing Course
We run two youth improver evening courses from 15th April to 17th June and from 14th June to 26th September. The classes are ten 2hr sessions out on Cardiff Bay and will get everyone out on the water and enjoy improving their sailing. These are open to everyone aged 8 - 16, with plenty of opportunities to get in control of their boats while having a great time. We will be working towards RYA stage 3 of the youth sailing scheme. These camps are an excellent opportunity to get out on the water and get lots of sailing while having a great time and gaining valuable qualifications
This course is ideal for sailors who have completed any of our beginner courses.
The course will be taught with a ratio of 6 students to 1 instructor and covers the following:
Stage 3 - A range of sailing skills and knowledge to help in becoming a better sailor. Rigging, launching and recovery, sailing techniques, capsize recovery, sailing theory. Equivalent to Level 2 in the National Sailing Scheme.
