Performance Sailing

Timing

 

  • Our 3-day option runs during the half term & bank holiday week school holidays from Wednesday to Friday, 0930 to 1630 with an hour for lunch
  • On the first day of the course, there is a briefing for the students when they meet their instructors and at the same time we have a briefing for parents/guardians from a senior member of the team.
  • On the last day, at 3.15, there is a sail past followed by prize giving when friends and family are invited to come and watch what the students have achieved during the week and celebrate their success
Teaching

All of our courses are taught by RYA qualified instructors in groups with a maximum ratio of 8 students to each instructor. Teaching takes place in the classroom and on the water and we move between the two depending on the group, the weather conditions and the requirements of the curriculum. At Queen Mary, this course follows the RYA Performance Sailing curriculum and is taught in larger performance dinghies with a helm and one or more crew. The course gives the student the opportunity to be coached and practise their helming and crewing skills and work on a smooth, fluent sailing performance with or without a spinnaker
