Optimist Improver » Tuesday Optimist Improver
These after school sailing sessions are aimed at post RYA Stage 3 optimist sailors building specific skills and techniques both on and off the water, whilst increasing experience and confidence. These sessions enable your young sailor to get afloat, make new friends and have fun whilst learning new skills. Sessions will consist of briefing & debriefs, mini races and boat handling exercises as well as initiation into racing.
All sailors need to have their RYA Stage 3 certificate in order to participate. Youth Improver sessions are not a replacement for formal RYA training but is designed to complement these with structured time on the water that allows youth sailors to progress quickly with a certified RYA instructor. For sailors without RYA stage 3, please refer to the Junior course tab on the booking page in order to get through their stages first.
This course will take place as 8 x 2hr weekly sessions in optimists. Please note the term start at finish dates at the time of booking.
