Learn to sail on this five day practical course, which provides the perfect introduction to sailing. During the 5 days we will introduce you to the basic fundamentals and take you through the necessary training to enable you to be confident out on the water.
Over the week we aim to cover the following;
RYA Start Sailing (Level 1): This course introduces you to the fundamentals of sailing, including sailing up, down and across the wind, turning the boat and how to recover from a capsize.
RYA Basic Skills (Level 2): This course consolidates what you have already learnt on the Start Sailing course and sets out the foundations for developing your sailing skills further enabling you to make good decisions out on the water.
Key learning points:

Rigging, launching, landing, sailing in all directions, capsize recovery, safety information and basic sailing theory.

Our friendly instructors will be with you every step of the way, offering clear instruction, guidance and encouragement to make this a truly unforgettable week.

Plas Menai will provide all necessary personal protective clothing including wetsuits, waterproofs, buoyancy aids and helmets.
Please bring with you;
  • Swimming togs & towel

This week will give you a solid basic skill and knowledge base to allow you to go afloat.
