By the end of stage 2, they will have a range of sailing skills and knowledge to enable them to sail independently, under supervision, in light winds.

RYA Scheme: At Frensham we teach all four stages of the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme. Stages 1, 2 and 3 are taken in single-handed dinghies (Optimists for 8-9 year olds and Toppers for 10 – 13/14 year olds). Stage 4 requires a two-handed dinghy (a Cadet or Feva) for 10 – 14 year olds. We also teach up to Level 3 of the Adult RYA National Sailing Scheme.
