Course Description
At UYC our Sailing School's RYA Stage 3 course is designed to allow you to sail a small single-handed dinghy independently in any direction. Our RYA qualified instructors will teach you how to rig a dinghy correctly and how to launch and recover a boat. You will spend plenty of time on the water building on your previous knowledge and skills and learning how to sail in a greater variety of situations. We will introduce you to racing and teach you some of the techniques for making your boat sail faster. You will also learn more about using ropes and knots effectively

The course will cover;
Rigging
Launching and recovery
Sailing techniques
Capsize recovery
Sailing theory

On completion of the Stage 3 Course, you will be able to rig and launch a dinghy and sail in any direction in moderate conditions. Your skills and knowledge mean that you will be able to regard yourself as a sailor and not just a beginner!

Next Steps
You now need to practise the skills that you have developed. Try to get out on the water as much as possible. When you feel ready to learn some more then there are 5 advanced modules which cover different areas of the sport. Your instructor can give you more information about these and the details are also in the RYA course brochure. https://www.rya.org.uk/SiteCollectionDocuments/training/Pathway%20leaflets/Dinghy%20Youth.pdf
