Sailing Technique Week
28 May 2020
Many people have some basic knowledge and experience of dinghy sailing but would like to be able to sail better, faster and learn new skills. If you can already tack, gybe and make your way round a triangular course and want to improve your sailing in the beautiful, warm Aegean sea, then this is the week for you!
Learning to race is an excellent way to improve your sailing skills and will give you the confidence to join in with your local sailing club’s racing activities. Over four half-day sessions, we will be running an RYA Start Racing course. This will cover skills such as starting, boat speed and handling, racing strategy and rules and will include some practice races for fun.
During the week our highly qualified and experienced instructors will also be running a series of clinics. You are welcome to attend any of the clinics to fit in with your other holiday activities, just let us know if you would like to join any of the following as spaces are limited:
- Sailing with spinnakers
- Trapezing (using our stable catamarans)
- Performance sailing
If you do plan to become more involved in sailing, why not join us for the RYA Powerboat Level 2 course the following week? Most sailing clubs require their volunteer safety boat drivers to have this qualification.
