Avon County Scouts Sailing Section – Adult Training Courses

The sailing season has started on the harbour with the usual busy programme. Taster sessions are booked well ahead and we look forward to another successful summer.  We welcome any adults – either parents or friends – who would like to join our active team. If you would like to become more involved, please speak to the Officer of the Day at any of our taster sessions, and they will show you how to help and will recommend subsidised training.

Adult training courses will be taking place on the following dates:
Level 1     26th/27th May
Level 2    30thJune/1st July
Level 3    14th /15th July

Level 1 introduces sailing for adults new to sailing. The course will provide a basic understanding of dinghy handling techniques and background knowledge of sailing. Crewed boats Bahias and Wayfarers are used for this course. Ability and knowledge should be consolidated in Level 2. Participants attending both days will aim to attain the RYA Level 1 certificate.  For more details on the courses, including cost and booking details, please see the web site http://www.ascss.org.uk/index.php/rya-courses.

We look forward to seeing you.
