Course Content:

Although each candidate has the opportunity to deliver a pre-prepared short talk on a subject of their choice, the course focuses much more heavily on practical sessions. The practical sections of this course usually focus on a specific part of racing (i.e. windward mark rounding, upwind tactics, start line bias and so on). The aim is for the candidates to run lots of short sessions afloat. The course includes:

  • Structure of the RYA racing courses and scheme

  • Personal development

On successful completion, the candidates’ logbook will be signed by the Coach/Assessor.
