  • Course Cost: £235 (members) £295 (non members)

This RYA Stage 1 & 2 combined course is accessible to complete beginners between the age of 6 & 7, we have tailored this course to suit the younger minds. In our experience it can take a little longer for this age group to take in all the information so we have given them a course all to themselves designed to firmly place our youngsters on the pathway to enjoying their sailing. Please be aware that not all children who attend this course will attain their Stage 2. We will do our upmost to make sure they are making good headway and if they don't we will talk with you and put together a programme in which they can achieve their stage 2.
