What to expect

A fun introduction to sailing that teaches the basics of getting on the water, learning how to steer, the parts of the boat, along with basic sailing skills and principles. The course runs over 2 days, 10am - 3.30pm and all kit is included. The course is suitable for those who have tried a bit of sailing before and would like to get their qualification and for those with absolutely no experience, but love being in the water, having fun, and want to learn a new skill!

2020 dates: April 6th & 7th, May 25th & 26th

Day01

On arrival at Polkerris, you'll be kitted up, given a briefing and introduced to the boats. The day will begin on land, getting to know the boats, learning basic steering and capsizing drills, as well as how to set the boats up, before getting on the water to hone your skills. There will be a lunch break (you are welcome to bring your own food or buy something from our cafe) and you will cover some theory. Then it's back on the water (weather dependant of course!) to continue practising your new skills.

Day02

You'll get kitted up and straight down to the boats to recap what was learned on day one. After a quick recap, including rigging up the boats correctly, it'll be back on the water to recap skills and keep developing your steering, turning, and sailing across the wind. There might be some capsizing and some harder challenges too, as well as some games before and after lunch! Weather depending, you'll spend as much time as possible sailing in order to build your confidence and sailing ability.
