This course focuses on boat handling skills such as man overboard recovery, picking up a mooring and sailing backwards. Get a deeper knowledge of sailing theory and learn more advanced rope work. You will also be able to sail in more challenging conditions and become completely independent in your sailing. This course is a 3-day course to allow enough time to perfect the more advanced skills. This course may combine both youth and adult sailors.
