Adult Improver and Advanced Courses

Adult TrainingFor members, we offer a range of further courses, which aim to improve their sailing and help individuals get the best out of their boating activity. These include courses to improve racing skills and also to develop supporting skills such as RYA Power Boat training.


As well as Level 1 and 2 in 2017 we will be running:

  • Sailing with Spinnakers - suitable for people who have completed a RYA Level 3 course and done some sailing since reaching this level. The course focuses, unsurprisingly, on using a spinnaker, so participants need to be competent at handling a boat on all points of sail in a variety of conditions.
  • Seamanship - You will see a real improvement in your doublehander helming skills and boat positioning, by focusing on manoeuvres and seamanship decisions. Manoeuvres include sailing backwards, sailing with no rudder or centreboard, anchoring, reefing afloat, recovery of a man overboard and being towed.
  • Learn to Race - See separate page for dates and times. This 10 session course is designed to build on your boat handling skills and introduce you to racing at Staunton Harold. If you have done your level 2 and are reasonably confident sailing around a simple course this will be an ideal next step for you. If you have had a go at racing several years ago but want to refresh the basics then this course can do that too.
