August Course Basic Skills – Member Level 2
8th– 18th August, Mon to Fri 10am – 5pm Lunch break 1pm-2pm
This is the course to do once you have completed Start Sailing. Having picked up the basic skills on Start Sailing, you are now ready to expand your horizons. During this two week course, we concentrate on boat handling and seamanship skills. By the end of the course, you should be confident to helm your own dinghy in light wind conditions without assistance from your instructor.

When applying for courses at the level of Improving Skills and above, it is important that the sailor has logged some sailing time following the previously completed course in order to consolidate the skills learned. A sailor moving directly up to the next level without having sailed since the previous course will find it difficult to achieve the required standard needed to pass the course assessment.
