The RYA Start Sailing Dinghy course provides a short introduction to sailing for novices. By the end of the course, participants will have a basic understanding of boat handling techniques and background knowledge. It is recommended that all participants consolidate this short introduction with the Basic Skills Level 2 course.
Tuition is provided by trained instructors, using appropriate supervision ratios i.e. 1:6 in single handed dinghies and 1:3 or 1:2 in crewed dinghies with an instructor on board.
