TSC will be running RYA1 & 2 beginners sailing courses on dates through May / June / July. The courses are intended to introduce you to dinghy sailing. They include all the basic boat handling techniques and you will steer the boat through most of these during the course. There is some background theory but the emphasis is on you practising sailing. The course is normally taught in Laser 2000 dinghies with 2 students and an Instructor in each boat. Singlehanded Lasers and Toppers may also be used.
