Take your first steps into learning how to sail this 2 day Course is designed for beginners to learn how to sail. The course covers either single handed or crewed boat depending on the groups personal preference. single handed boats are more agile in the water but their confined space does make them more difficult when moving around the boat. Crewed boats are a lot larger and with their larger sails and hull require 2 person to sail them effectively.
