The RYA Adult Level 1 Course here at All-Aboard, will introduce you to sailing and teach you all that you need to know to get afloat, whilst still under supervision.

Forming the first stage of the RYA beginners’ scheme, this is part of a series of two-day courses that enable you to progress quickly from beginner to expert in a controlled, safe and enjoyable environment.

The course covers how to sail in all directions, including an awareness of launching and recovering. After the course you will be able to sail in light winds, whilst still under supervision.


***This is a two-day course however each course has an allocated third date which will be used in circumstances where a session is cancelled due to unfavourable weather conditions. If you are booking on to the course you need to be available for all 3 dates. Participants on the course will only be offered this additional third day (free of charge) to complete the course.***


If you complete any of the above Level 1 courses and would like to progress onto Level 2 we have RYA Adult Level 2 courses running throughout 2020. Please click HERE for dates
