Step 2 (Better Sailing)
For Sailors who have completed Start Sailing 1 & 2
Better Sailing is the next step for Sailors once they’ve completed Step 1. It’s a shorter program, a transition step - getting ready to become independent. In this program, more fundamental skills are introduced and what’s been learned is refined. During this course, the focus is still on fun, safety and building confidence on and off the water.
As the sailors build their skills, they’ll seek to have a boat that suits their personality and their size. During this course, it’s a good time to start thinking about when to buy a boat or if you’d like a club boat to loan. The club can help guide you through this when the time comes.
