A Quick Guide to Sailing Courses

23 Jun Posted by in Guest Post | Comments

It doesn’t matter how old you are, it’s never too late to try something new. Whether it’s learning a new watersport, taking to the slopes during the winter months, or learning to commandeer your own yacht, is completely up to you but whatever you choose, you can guarantee a feeling of euphoria as you grasp the basics, no matter what your age.

As far as sailing courses go, what one you enrol on will depend on whether you’ve had boating experience previously. Whichever one you choose though, you can guarantee you’ll enjoy the course whilst also being able to see a beautiful part of the world with blazing sunshine and clear skies.

Have you always fancied yourself as a bit of a seadog but never taken the plunge to learn the ropes? There’s no reason why you can’t learn now and with plenty of courses available, you can incorporate it into your summer sojourn.

For Absolute Beginners

The Flotilla Skipper would be a perfect option if you’ve never sailed before. It introduces students to the art of manning a flotilla and the basics of navigation. On completion, you will receive the RYA Competent Crew certificate.

If you’d like to learn how to operate a flotilla but don’t necessarily want to be put in charge of steering it, the RYA Competent Crew course would be perfect for you.

There is also an intensive course that will help to take a complete beginner to the status of day skipper in a mere fortnight!

For Intermediates

If you’ve had some prior experience of commandeering a flotilla, the Refresher course could be all you need to relearn the basics. Alternatively, the RYA Day Skipper would be ideal if you already have some qualifications that you’d like to improve on.

Neilson sailing holidays are a perfect option if you’d like to learn something new or brush up on something you’ve not done for a while. Take to the seas this summer and spend some time learning a new skill as well as appreciating the beautiful corner of the world you’re moored in.
