I am not at the necessary standard / don’t have the necessary confidence after the course. What now?

Everybody learns to sail at different rates. If you feel that your ability isn’t 100%, you can: re-sit a day of the course the following week, organize a sail with other members from your course, or book a private lesson.

I have never sailed before

This is a common concern but is certainly not an issue. This course is designed for new sailors or those with some experience in their past. Due to the low teaching ratios, you will receive sufficient attention to alleviate any fears.
