Keelboat | Level 2 Sailing
Certification :
RYA Keelboat Level 2
Cost :
€325

This level 2 course is the next step after getting to grips with the basics at Level 1. This highly informative and practical course is conducted on our fleet of J80 Keelboats. Our trainee to instructor ratio of 4:1 ensures plenty of time to focus on the skills of individual participants. This course develops your confidence and competence afloat as you make your way up the sailing ladder.

Level 2 concentrates on consolidating the skills covered on the level 1 programme, in addition to introducing the following manoeuvres and skills:

  • Reefing – making your sail area smaller to cope with weather conditions.
  • Learning how to pick up a mooring in a variety of wind and tidal conditions.
  • Learning how to come alongside a moored boat / pontoon.
  • Recovering a person fallen overboard.
  • Anchoring.

Successful participants will receive the RYA Keelboat Level 2 certificate.

All wet gear and safety equipment is provided by us – we provide waterproof clothing and lifejackets. It really is just a case of getting yourself here and letting us do the rest!

  • star ratingAmazing! Well worth it and I enjoyed every bit of it! - Firstly, Jess (our instructor) was amazing! I was a bit nervous starting this course as I didn't know what to expect but Jess made it so easy to understand everything and I absolutely, thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it! As a result, I'll be booking more courses with them soon.

    I think the school is excellent, the structure of the courses are excellent and the instructors are very very good at what they do and I just want to thank Jess and everyone else involved for not only making it an excellent weekend but also giving me an interest in something that I want to stick with for the rest of my life!

    If there were 100 stars to choose from instead of just 5, I'd choose 110 ;)

  • star ratingExcellent experience all round. Best of all was how real every dimension was approached, from sailing as a theoretical and practical activity, with complexity and simplicity in balance, to great food, great feedback, honesty and integrity.
