RYA Sailing Level 3

Learn and have fun with the Experts

A more advanced two-day sailing course, taught by our highly-qualified instructors in the beautiful surroundings of New Quay bay.

Improve your sailing, consolidating skills and trying new ones in a variety of conditions. This may include aspects of racing, seamanship skills and spinnaker use, as well as rigging different boats, more advanced planning and safety.

The boats we use will depend on the conditions on the dates; you can see our dinghy fleet here.

We have wetsuits you can hire for £5. You’ll also need to bring lunch or buy it nearby. Bring a towel and swimsuit, and wetsuit boots/old trainers. We provide buoyancy aids.
