The RYA Level 3: Better Sailing course at Littleton Sailing Club assumes that the student has previously achieved the RYA Level 2: Basic Skills
certification, and had at least a season’s recent practice.
By the end of this course, you will be safety conscious and capable of sailing without an instructor in moderate conditions. Successful completion of this course is the ideal preparation (and pre-requisite) for starting the RYA Advanced Modules
. The course is normally completed in crewed dinghies and follows the RYA Level 3 syllabus on the National Sailing Scheme.
You’ll sail in double handed dinghies to develop techniques and skills in preparation for the ‘Advanced Modules’. Our course can include taster elements of seamanship, racing and spinnakers advanced courses.
Course location and duration
Teaching takes place on the water and in the classroom at Littleton Sailing Club and we move between the two depending on the group, the weather conditions and the requirements of the curriculum. It’s a 2-day course, from 09:30 to 17:00 (Timing may change to benefit from good weather). We will suggest some reading or on-line videos before and between training days that will accelerate your learning and progress.
All of our courses are taught by RYA qualified instructors in groups with a maximum ratio of 8 students to each instructor.
£80; a RYA Certificate is included on successful completion of course. An RYA Logbook is not included in the course price, but can be purchased if required.
