RYA Level 1: Dinghy Sailing   iCal entry for this event

Tynemouth Sailing Club [TSC] will be running an RYA1 beginners sailing course on Saturday the 17th & 24th of June.

The RYA1 & RYA2 courses are intended to introduce you to dinghy sailing. It includes all the basic boat handling techniques and you will steer the boat through most of the weekend. The course has some background theory but the emphasis is on you practising sailing. The course is normally taught in Enterprise dinghies with 2 students and an Instructor in each boat. Single-handed Lasers and Toppers may also be used.


Course Selection:

In the event of being oversubscribed TSC  reserve the right to select candidates on the basis of those who have attended “tasters”, those who are applying to do both courses and those who in the opinion of TSC are most likely to become long term club members. In the event of non selection any deposit/payment will be returned. We hope you will understand that the club’s primary objective in running courses has always been to recruit members ; we don’t charge commercial centre rates.
