Foiling - the latest innovation
Dinghy and windsurf foiling
WASZP European test centre
We run dinghy foiling using the WASZP and the foiling Laser. We also have a foiling windsurf from Starboard.
Our foiling instruction is one-to-one on the water but we may manage training with two students taking turns from a powerboat to maximize learning and reduce tiredness.
We run our foiling courses as try lessons, 6-hour or 10-hour courses. Most students find an single hour session sufficient time during their early learning.more
WASZP training centre
European test centre
WASZP foiling instruction
The WASZP was developed by Andrew McDougall (famous also for his work developing the Moth) and can be rigged with 8.2m or 6.8m sails and with high-lift or medium lift foils.
We also have the option of trainer wing floats for improved stability when learning. The Laser foil we use was also developed by Andrew.more[/lazy_load_box]
Keelboat sailing courses
RYA Keelboat sailing courses
Our RYA Keeboat courses follow the same structure as dinghy sailing courses with Levels 1 to 3 and advanced modules. The most popular is a Level 2 course run as a conversion from a dinghy Level 2 certificate.
We use an SB20 which is a high performance sportboat rather than a cabin boat and the courses usually run for 2 whole days from 09:00 to 18:00 to enable us to manage berthing, rigging and preparing the boat (as a group) and maximizing the time on the water.more[/lazy_load_box]
RYA Levels 1 and 2 and Safetyboat
Our RYA Powerboat courses will teach you how to drive and manage a powerboat, competently and safely. While it might look simple, there are techniques to all the manoeuvres which require learning and practice to perform well and safely.
A Level 1 certificate demonstrates basic understanding and enables you to drive a powerboat with supervision. The Level 2 certificate is the 'driving licence' for powerboats up to 10m and in daylight. We can also run Safety boat certificate courses.more[/lazy_load_box]
