RYA Performance Sailing
This 2 day course runs from 09:30 until 17:00 over a weekend.
This is the ultimate top-end dinghy course in high performance boats which combine large sail plans and asymetric spinnakers with trapezes to deliver the ultimate thrill of high speed sailing once you have mastered how to control it all! By the end of the course you will be more confident in a high performance dinghy, both at high speeds on the water and with the trickeries of launching and recovering unstable performance boats.
Prior to attending this course you should have comfortably mastered the skills learnt on the RYA Seamanship Skills and RYA Sailing With Spinnakers courses.
