Price for 1 participant

Enjoy a Sailing Lesson in Dorset and experience the expertise of your crew and skipper for a whole weekend! Submerge yourself in Yacht Sailing and appreciate the skills and techniques learned over years of conquering the seas from your instructor. This authentic lesson throws you in at the deep end, where you will really get some hands on experience with the essential skills required to sail, including knot tying, sail handling, mooring and much more! The weekend lesson involves staying on the boat overnight and sharing the cooking and tea making duties!

Your Dorset Sailing Lessons Weekend experience will begin when you meet the crew and skipper for an introductory brew to discuss the weekend's itinerary. Here you can raise questions and discuss elements you'd particularly like to focus on. Then, once briefed and buoyed, you'll embark on your Weekend Sailing Lesson and begin learning the skills -thrown straight in at the deep end. You will be getting 'hands on' experience in just about every aspect of yacht Sailing, from knot tying to cooking for the crewmen! Not only fantastic fun, brilliantly insightful and surprisingly sociable; Sailing Lessons Weekend will also certify you with RYA's Competent Crew Award!
