Event description

Description

Our welcoming instructors are on hand to help you progress in the world of sailing. We provide all of the equipment and clothing needed including; buoyancy aids, wetsuits, boats and instructors. All you need to bring with you is a change of clothes, a towel, and shoes you don’t mind getting wet, as well as bags of enthuasim. We are not in a position to offer food on site, however there is a shop locally which you can visit. We do have vending machines on site.


The waterstart is one of the gateway skills; it opens up so much more of our

great sport. The reason for this move is that we arrive on the board in the sailing position and it is a more efficient way of getting going in stronger winds and bumpy waters.

It is a key skill for our progression down to sailing smaller kit.

The skill is built from having a strong proficiency in beachstarts. From here a range of drills, including sailing and dragging one leg in the water, sailing kneeling down

and sailing one handed helps us to move closer to our goal. These drills can be interspersed through your sailing sessions and a bit of feedback, coaching and video footage can speed up the process.
