No previous experience whatsoever is required.Upcoming dates: Sat/Sun 20th-21st May (4 spaces); Sat/Sun 22nd-23rd Jul (6 spaces); Sat/Sun 16th-17th Sep (6 spaces).
RYA Adult Level 2 (£175) – We often refer to RYA Level 2 as the “driving licence” to sailing as once you have successfully completed the course you should be quite able to launch and recover your own boat. It also enables you to hire all of the sailing equipment we have here at Porth Eirias.Upcoming dates: Sat/Sun 29th-30th Jul (6 spaces); Sat/Sun 26th-27th Aug (6 spaces).
RYA Adult Level 3 (£175) – This improver course seeks to bridge the gap between level two and the five advanced modules in the RYA scheme and is intended to make the transition easier for those sailors wishing to progress further through the scheme giving a taster of what some of the advanced modules have to offer.Please enquire about dates as we will organise courses based on demand.
RYA Sailing with Spinnakers (£175) – This advanced course is mainly focused on the use of asymmetric spinnakers across a multitude of craft. Use of the spinnaker will allow you to unlock the full potential of your dinghy, and get you screaming downwind.
Please enquire about dates as we will organise courses based on demand.
Weekend Warmup (£20) – Every Friday night in the season we get on the water for a few hours after work. These are really fun social sessions where we can work on skills, and the price includes a drink at the bar afterwards. Open to anyone who has completed an RYA Level One course or equivalent.
