By the end of this introductory course you will have a basic understanding of how a boat sails. You will gain some experience of steering and basic boat handling.

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 or in a crewed boat with an instructor on board. We will decide which boats to use based on the forecast and your level for adventure. Whichever boat you’re in one of our qualified and experienced dinghy Instructors will be close by watching and helping you through the course activities.
