  • Description

    RYA Stage 3 introduces young sailors to on-water manoeuvres, guiding them further towards independent sailing.

    The manoeuvres introduced in this 2 day course are picking up a mooring, coming alongside, capsize recovery and man-over-board recovery. Alongside these topics the young sailors will also work to improve their sailing techniques and shore-based knowledge.  

    We recommend that prior to attending a Stage 3 course, the young sailor has had time on the water to consolidate all skills learnt previously and had the opportunity to build their on-water confidence. Our Active Sail Academy weeks or RYA Onboard sessions are dedicated to meet these needs.

    Please note that refunds will not be issued if you pay with a card and later wish to pay with childcare vouchers
