The Start Sailing Level 1 course is aimed at the absolute novice and requires no previous experience.  By the end of the course, participants will have a basic understanding of boat handling techniques and background knowledge and will be able to handle the yacht under the watchful eye of an instructor.

The course content includes rigging, ropework and knots, practical sailing manoeuvres, clothing and equipment, rules of the road and safety.

We offer this course as a single module with the 15 hours of tuition spread over your holiday time. You can book this course on either a 'short break' or over a weeks holiday.

If you prefer, you have the option to take Start Sailing Level 1 as a combination course with Basic Skills Level 2 on a full weeks break. 

The combination of level 1 and level 2 is probably our most popular course. With tuition condensed into 24 hours and spread over the week, we are able to deliver the training in a manner best suited to your overall holiday plans, providing you with ample time to practise your new skills as well as relax and enjoy the beauty of the Norfolk Broads.  See the Level 2 page for more information.
