Youth Improver Sailing Camp
Our Improvers camps run during the Easter, Summer and half-term Holidays. The camps range between three and five-days and will get everyone out on the water building on their skills learnt during their beginner's course. These camps are open to everyone aged 8 - 16 who have completed their RYA Stage 2 Sailing Course. The Improver Camp builds on learning in the beginners camp, with the sailors aiming for their RYA stage 3 and State Racing of the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme. These camps are an excellent opportunity to get out on the water and get a lot of sailing in.
This course is ideal for sailors who have completed our beginners camp or sailors who are RYA Stage 2.
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.
