The RYA Keelboat Level 3 – Better Sailing consolidates on what you have learnt in the RYA Keelboat Level 1 and 2 certificates and will give you a taster of the RYA Advanced Keelboat courses.

Our instructors will have some flexibility to tailor this course to your own requirements depending on how you would like to develop your skills. This could include teaching you some basic sailing skills such as using a spinnaker or more information about day cruising.

It is all about building on what you have learnt during Levels 1 and 2 and your experience of sailing your own boat and give you more techniques and confidence in sailing in different conditions.

Ability after course: More confident in sailing skills and techniques, and ready to progress onto the advanced modules

Using their local knowledge of the tides and the weather, our highly experienced instructors will ensure you get the very most out of the weekend, whatever the conditions.

 


Plas Menai will provide all necessary personal protective clothing including wetsuits, waterproofs, buoyancy aids and helmets.

Please bring with you;

  • Swimming togs & towel
  • Footwear for on the water
  • Sock that cover your ankles
  • 50p for locker
