Waiting list

Available till 18 Jul 2020

Course: RYA Stages 2&3 (Young Sailors Start Sailing Scheme)

Age Group: 10 – 14 year olds

Boat: Topper single-handed dinghy

Requirements: No previous sailing experience required, though youngsters moving from Optimists to Toppers will normally complete these stages again. This is because the Topper is a more powerful and less stable boat than the Optimist and training takes place in a less sheltered area of the Pond.

Duration: 4 weekdays Cost £190 (Frensham member): £260 (non-member)

Course description: By the end of the course, youngsters will have acquired a range of sailing skills and background knowledge and be well on the way to being a confident small boat sailor.

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 – 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.
