Adult training courses

Adult TrainingAt SHSC, courses are designed with the complete beginner in mind and make an ideal introduction to the world of dinghy sailing. We teach levels 1, 2 and 3 of the RYA National Sailing Scheme in an interesting and enjoyable programme of theoretical and practical instruction . On completion of the course, the successful sailor will be safety conscious, have a basic knowledge of sailing and be capable of sailing without instruction in light winds, with level 3 preparing you for racing.

You will be taught primarily in RS Visions and Laser 13s - large double handed dinghies ideally suited for training. There may also be opportunity to try single handed sailing in a Laser I. Towards the end of the course we try to incorporate a 'try a boat' session during which you may be introduced to other classes of dinghy.

Buoyancy aids, wetsuits and spray tops are provided. Sensible 'old' clothes, including closed-toe footwear, should be worn while sailing, bearing in mind the possibilities for getting wet. A change of clothing and a towel is essential!

Successful completion of the Level 1 or Level 2 certificate also allows club members to hire the club boats.

In 2018 there will be two course options for combined Level 1 and 2 courses, as well as a stand-alone Level 1 course
