The certificates within the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme are a significant achievement. Instructors sign off each skill as you complete it and once completed your certificate can be of use in other areas of your study or activities such as PE at school, or the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
This RYA Youth Stage 1 course will give you a basic understanding of how a boat sails, with some experience of steering and handling the boat. It covers launching and recovery, steering, parts of the boat, and basic sailing. After the course you will be able to steer and understand basic principles of sailing.
RYA Youth Stage 1 – 8 Week after school course
We are running an 8 week after school RYA Youth Stage 1 course on Monday evenings from 20th April – 15th June 2020 (excluding 25th May) from 5pm-7.30pm. This course will cover the same content as the two-day option but may suit those who cannot commit two full days or would like to work towards a certificate after school. *Please ensure that you select the appropriate course when booking.*
Please note: Two days / 8 evenings is the minimum time required to complete the course. The actual time required depends on ability and weather conditions on the day. A certificate will only be issued if you have demonstrated the ability to complete the syllabus in appropriate weather conditions. If needed, please speak to the office about organising an extra session to complete the course.
