Improvers Sailing Sessions

Calling TYC members who have done a bit of sailing or have some sailing experience but would like to practise informally with advice and support standing by.   Here’s a chance to notch up your hours and progress!  We can help you to develop skills at RYA Level 2 or 3.

 

We have five sessions scheduled this year so ask at the bar if you wish to be included on our distribution list and join us on the river.  

Approximate  Duration:              

2 – 3 hours

Under 16’s (min age 8):             

Under 16’s will need a parent or responsible adult standing by during the session– even better to take part! It is aimed at candidates who have RYA Level 1 or 2 but wish to gain experience and improve their skills.

Course Content:                      

We help you to develop skills at RYA Level 2 or 3 so you will be able to sail confidently in all directions, use the tide to your advantage, be able to rig and de-rig and take part in racing if you want to.               

We can provide buoyancy aids or bring your own if you prefer. We do not provide wetsuits or protective clothing, but strongly advise that you acquire your own before starting a course. We can advise If necessary. You should bring: swimwear (to wear under wetsuit), shoes you are happy to get wet, a towel, a change of clothes, suntan cream, a hat, and a water bottle.

If you are interested, speak to a member of the  TYC Committee, ask over the bar or apply to courses@twickenhamyc.org with your sailing experience (if any).
