Dinghy sailing courses
Learning how to sail a dinghy is great fun and and provides some essential knowledge even for those looking to crew bigger keelboats.
The quick response of the helm and the fast acceleration really make you appreciate how every small movement and change of settings deeply affect the handling of the boat.
The RS Quests used for this course are fully-fledged sailing dinghies, complete with asymmetric spinnakers and trapeze, while being designed for training and thus safe and easy to handle.
