RYA Adult Dinghy Course Level 1 & 2 weekends and midweek offers



An RYA Accredited Course comprised of two, two-day courses over two individual weekends (or midweek) for adults wanting to learn sailing in dinghies. It enables you to progress quickly from beginner to confident sailor in a controlled, safe and enjoyable environment.

One of the benefits of taking courses at LCSC is that we will also put on a session at the club where we will allow you to sail with us to practice.

We will give you 1 month's sailing after your course date to sail with us before you decide whether to continue and become club members at a reduced rate.

For these sessions (Toe in the water sessions), we provide extra safety boat cover.

Please note: All training sessions will be provided on Fusions which are single handers.
