Start Sailing Level 1 is an excellent introduction to sailing for beginners. The course includes background knowledge presented in the online modules as well as practical sailing experience on the sea in our 22ft keelboat. Topics include: reaching, tacking, gybing, man overboard, rules of the road, 5 essentials, knots, parts of the boat, sails and ropes as well as weather forecasts and important safety advice.
After level 1, we recommend you complete the beginners sailing course with Level 2 Basic Skills, another 2-day course.
