There is nothing more exhilarating than blasting around on the water in a catamaran and our location on the shores of Plas Menai offers ideal training conditions.
What will I learn?
RYA Level 1 Start Sailing Catamarans (2 days) -

This course introduces you to the fundamentals of sailing, including sailing up, down and across the wind, turning the boat and what to do in the event of a capsize.
The 2 days will begin with an instructor sailing in the boat with you, but it is hoped by the end of the 2 days you will be sailing on your own, with the instructor overseeing your development from a powerboat.

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.
Plas Menai will provide all necessary personal protective clothing including wetsuits, waterproofs, buoyancy aids and helmets.

Please bring with you;
Swimming togs & towel
Footwear for on the water
Sock that cover your ankles
50p for locker

These 2 days are a perfect introduction to sailing, to progress your sailing further we recommend joining your local sailing club to help consolidate what you have learnt and then join us for RYA Basic Skills Catamaran  (L2) for a further 2 days.
