This is a five day course taking the complete beginner through to sailing solo. Full instruction is provided on all aspects of learning to sail, from clothing to capsize and beyond! Take full advantage of our fleet of modern sailing dinghies and experienced, qualified instructions to have a blast and meet new friends.
