Sailing Skills Courses - 4 hour modules


Members & LCSC students only

Modules will be added into the calendar as a roll out based on demand throughout the year.

Usually, we will be on the water for two hours with 2 hours theory and rigging either end. Options for participants will include use of stern or centre mainsheet, Enterprises or centre mainsheet, RS Visions or single-handed Lasers or Fusions. All modules last for a minimum of four hours.

Aims:

These coaching modules are aimed at helping sailors further improve their dinghy sailing skills by concentrating on specific skills during short, sharp sessions. In some cases, they will have a particular emphasis on racing and mostly, will have a bias towards sailing on the river.

The modules run prior to racing at the club, so that participants can then join races if they wish.

These coaching modules follow RYA guidelines and coaching methods and are run by RYA qualified instructors or highly experienced sailors.
