RYA Youth Summer Sailing Courses   iCal entry for this event

At Draycote Water we offer all 4 stages, and some advanced modules of the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme (YSS) over a 3 or 5 day course running each week Monday to Friday of the holidays.

WAITING LIST/RESERVE spaces are not a guaranteed place on a course and are subject to someone dropping out of a course. They should only be chosen when spaces for that week are full.

 

An outline of the scheme and courses can be found below.

Important Information

There is a minimum age of 8 years old.

16+ should take our adult courses

Participants must be confident in deep water (but don't have to be strong swimmers)

You do NOT have to be a member of the club.

 If in doubt try sailing first with a taster session 

RYA Stages/ Syllabus

Stage 1

This is an introductory course to the world of sailing, giving initial experience and confidence to get out on the water taking control of the boat and sails to gain an understanding of the principles of sailing.

Stage 2

By the end of the stage 2 course you will have a greater knowledge and understanding of sailing allowing you to take a boat out in sheltered water in light winds.

Stage 3

Having completed stage 2 you are now ready for the next challenge, stage 3 teaches you how to sail in any direction and in stronger winds than you would have encountered in stage 2. You also gain the knowledge and time in a boat to call yourself a sailor rather than a beginner.

Stage 4

In stage 4 you take the progression into double handed boats, you practice the same skills as in stage 3 but with the addition of having a more powerful boat, a crew and the different techniques that apply to these boats.

 Advanced Modules

These include racing, spinnaker or seamanship skills modules.

 

After progressing through stage 1 and 2 it is a good time to hire boats, join in youth club and have fun on the water.

With stage 3 and 4 the options of intermediate youth club, racing and advance courses such as spinnaker sailing become available.
