Level 2 (or equivalent experience, as judged be a Senior Instructor) is the entry requirement for the Level 3 course.
RYA Scheme: At Frensham we teach Levels 1 3 of the RYA National Sailing Scheme. Whilst Levels 1 & 2 are aimed at providing beginners with the basic skills to sail a boat safely and independently in light winds, Level 3 is for those who wish to develop their skills further and acquire an introduction to racing.
We also teach all four stages of the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme. Stages 1, 2 and 3 are taken in single-handed dinghies (Optimists for 8-10 year olds and Toppers for 10 13/14 year olds). Stage 4 requires a two-handed dinghy (a Cadet or Feva) for 11 14 year olds.
