Sat Apr 27 2024 at 09:00 am to Sun Apr 28 2024 at 05:00 pm


Llyn Brenig Sailing Club | Betws-y-coed, WA

This 16-hour course over 2 days is aimed at sailors of all ages, and any/no ability, from complete novices to those who have sailed in the past and want to refresh. The course will be taught by RYA-accredited Dinghy Instructors under the supervision of a Senior Instructor. Trainees will be taught in small, flexible groups to ensure that each receives the tuition and support that they need. Each trainee will be trained and assessed against the RYA Level 1 syllabus, which includes rigging, wind awareness, ropework, sailing techniques & manoeuvres, launching and recovery, some sailing theory and background, clothing and equipment, meteorology and capsize recovery - with the aim of each qualifying for the RYA’s Level 1 Dinghy Sailing Certificate. Trainees whose aptitude and ability show sufficient progress will be taken on into the RYA Level 2 syllabus, which includes more advanced levels of rigging for weather conditions, ropework, sailing techniques and manoeuvres, close-quarter handling, launching and recovery, capsize recovery, introductory racing, meteorology, anchoring and safety equipment, with the aim of qualifying for the RYA’s Level 2 Dinghy Sailing Certificate. Youngsters will receive the equivalent RYA Stage 1 and/or Stages Certificates. Cost of the course is £140 for adults and £90 for under 18s – but we’ve received funding to give a 50% discount to participants who live within 15km of the club, or anywhere in Denbighshire; first come, first served. The fee includes free use of wet suits, flotation jackets and helmets. And to help you progress with your sailing after the course, you will be given 3 months free membership of Llyn Brenig Sailing Club which includes free use of our training boats and equipment.
