On completion of this course you will have a basic knowledge of sailing and be capable of sailing without an instructor on board in light winds.

At PDSSA we take this course in a variety of small dinghies. You may be sailing single handed, in a two man boat with another beginner and an instructor close to you in a safety boat or more likely in a crewed boat with an instructor on board.

It is recommended that all participants consolidate their basic skills with the level 3 better sailing level 3 course as well as practice between courses.
