Learnt to sail! What next?

You may have learnt to sail for many different reasons: to hire a boat whilst on holiday, cruise along the coast on summer days, sail at your local club, or become a top flight racer.

Once you have completed your RYA learn to sail courses, how do you improve the skills that you have? The only way to maintain and improve your skills is to practice them and club racing provides the perfect way to achieve this. Taking part in club racing will give you the skills to enjoy sailing at whatever level you want.

The “Start to Race” course teaches everything you need to know to join in and enjoy racing at club level. Even if you do not intend to race the course will enhance your overall sailing skills.

The course will follow the RYA’s Start to Race syllabus, although this will not be an official RYA course, and be led by Jonathan Carter an RYA qualified Dinghy Instructor, Club Racing Coach and successful dinghy racer (see the picture showing him battling upwind against a force 6 wind).

The course will run 9am-5pm on Saturday 15th June and for those that are interested we will continue on the Sunday morning leading up to taking part in the 12noon club race. There are two further club races that day for the truly enthusiastic. We will aim to cover the following, but the course will be adapted to the needs of those taking part:

  • Racing rules
  • Starts
  • Tactics
  • Local club racing
  • Strategy
  • Boat handling
  • Boat speed
  • Boat preparation
  • Physical and mental preparation

If you already take part in racing but would like a more advanced course please contact Jonathan directly.
