This two day keelboat instructor endorsement course involves the coaching of keelboat sailing skills through the running of sessions ashore and afloat. The weekend’s coaching will concentrate on good briefing, the running of sessions to improve student performance and the delivery of quality group debriefs.
In order to run successful sessions a good practical knowledge of keelboat techniques and manoeuvres (under sail and engine) is expected.
