Learn to Sail (10-15 years): Stage 1

All of our courses are taught by RYA qualified instructors in groups with a maximum ratio of 6 students to each instructor. Teaching takes place on the water and in the classroom and we move between the two depending on the group, the weather conditions and the requirements of the curriculum.

The Learn to Sail course at Queen Mary assumes that the student has not sailed before and is normally conducted in Picos with 2 students in each dinghy. We focus on RYA Stage 1 of the Youth Sailing Scheme with each student attaining a level according to their own individual ability. By the end of the week, the student will have basic understanding of how a boat sails, and some experience of steering and handling a boat.
