Introduction to Windsurfing sailing. This 1 Day course is for Kids who want to try out windsurfing to see how they like it and if they would like to pursue it further. This one day course covers the basic skills required to get on the board and manage the sail. There is lots of balance required for windsurfing but the say is “if you’re not getting wetter you’re not getting better”.
RYA Youth Start Sailing (Stage 1): This course introduces you to the fundamentals of windsurfing focusing on board balance, steering using the sail, wind awareness and static turns
Key learning points: assisting in rigging, launching, landing, sailing across the wind, safety position, safety, personal equipment and steering, static turns.
The Next Steps: To progress your Windsurfing further we recommend joining your local junior windsurfing club to help consolidate what you have learnt and then consider attending a RYA Youth Stage 1 Course
