Start Racing

This course follows the RYA Start Racing curriculum with the aim of introducing the novice to the sport of dinghy racing. It contains all the student needs to know to get round the course and lays the foundations for winning. 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.
