Dinghy Start Sailing (Level One)
A two day introduction to the joys of dinghy sailing. Under the guidance of a RYA instructor you will develop the basic skills required to successfully sail a dinghy solo.
Dinghy Basic Skills (Level Two)
An opportunity to refine the skills learnt during a level 1 course or equivalent. During the 2-day course you will get the opportunity to sail a variety of boats, both single handers and double handers. Both your tidal and wind awareness will improve allowing you to be able to make your own seamanship decisions. The holder of a level 2 certificate is recognised nationally as an individual who can sail competently in moderate conditions.
Using a selection of double handed boats use this course to improve your general boat handling. The skills practiced will include rudderless sailing, reefing afloat, towing, wind against tide manoeuvres and man over board plus a range of other skills bias towards improving your tidal and wind awareness.
Add another dimension to your sailing and learn how to use and tame the spinnaker. This course can be done in your own boat or using one of the many spinnaker dinghies at the centre. We can provide both Asymmetric and Symmetric Spinnaker training.
Learn about basic navigation and pilotage and put these skills into practice as you explore the many options Mounts Bay has to offer a small boat. The first morning will be spent improving your boat handling techniques and introducing skills like anchoring and picking up mooring buoys. In the afternoon you will set sail on a short passage around the Bay. Both days will involve sailing to a pub or somewhere for lunch.
A must for any aspiring racer! You will learn about every aspect of racing and will have the opportunity to put these skills into practice on the water. This course is ideal for those who want to improve at club level or learn about this exciting aspect of the sport.
Learn how to tune and handle high performance boats. During this course you will be coached in advanced boat handling techniques using boats that will allow you to tune their sail and rig controls to the conditions and thus help you improve your boat speed across the water. It is a centre recommendation that you have knowledge of how to use a spinnaker before attending this course.
