Improver Windsurfing: Stages 3/4


Our week long courses during the school holidays run from 9.30 until 4.30 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


All of our courses are taught by RYA qualified instructors in groups with a maximum ratio of 6 students to each instructor. Teaching takes place on the water and in the classroom and we move between the two depending on the group, the weather conditions and the requirements of the curriculum. At Queen Mary, the Improver Windsurfing course focusses on Stages 3 and 4 of the National Curriculum. At the end of Stage 3, the student should know how to rig and set up their board for the prevailing conditions, sail to all points, and understand the use and limitations of the dagger board. At the end of Stage 4, the student should be confident using a harness and shoule be able to show basic footstrap technique


What to bring

We provide wetsuits and buoyancy aids although if you have your own you are welcome to use them. You should bring: swimwear (to wear under wetsuit), shoes you are happy to get wet, a towel, a change of clothes, suntan cream, a hat, and a water bottle


Our onsite caterers have a daily menu available consisting of a 2 course cooked lunch with a salad bar, rolls and a drink. Lunches can be booked at the beginning of the week, payment by cheque or cash only - credit cards are not accepted.  Alternatively, participants may bring their own packed lunch.  Snacks are also available to purchase at lunch time.
