A great fun course for juniors 8+ where you can have a great time and learn the basics of sailing a boat. Here at Caldecotte our lake is perfect for learning the ropes! The space is big enough to give you room to move around and yet not so vast that you feel swamped. Learn knots, manoeuvres, rigging, and eventually try your hand tin other boats and move onto race technique.
Stage 2 will teach you a range of sailing skills and knowledge to help in becoming a confident sailor.
By the end of this course you will have increased your basic sailing skills, learned ropework and have the skills needed for collision avoidance. You should also have the ability to tack and control your boat speed and understand the basic principles needed for good, safe sailing.
