Knock the rust off after the winter and get ready for the summer by going on our improvers course over the Easter Holidays!


This course is for those who have successfully completed the learn to sail course and hold their RYA Stage 2 (or equivalent experience). We would also strongly recommend that students have some other sailing experience. For example, attending our weekly sailing sessions, since completing their learn to sail course. Participants who have not sailed since completing their Stage 2 will be unlikely to pass the Stage 3 or the Start Racing module. 

The exact content of this course will be dependent on the participants skill mix and weather. The course will aim to cover the RYA Stage 3 and the Start Racing syllabus. For further information on the RYA syllabus, please see the RYA website.

It should be noted that certificates are awarded through the RYA scheme, and thus only awarded when skills can be shown at the correct level. The club takes no responsibility for the completion of certificates, we will support participants towards achieving their best. However, it is important that junior sailors present with the right skill level for the course they wish to do.


Participants should be confident in the water and able to swim 50m in light clothing.

You will be asked to complete an application form and a medical consent form on the ELYC website.

We will not take anyone under 11 years on the course.

If you have any further questions please see our FAQ page or contact Ben Wilcox,
