Better Sailing
RYA Level 3
Two ladies improving their sailing skills

This is a 2-day improver course following on from the beginner level courses. It attracts sailors from a wide variety of sailing backgrounds because it's a flexible course providing an opportunity to practice everything you've learnt so far. You can use it as many times as you like to develop your sailing experience on the sea.

If you know all the basics and feel a bit rusty, it's a good way to get back into sailing again. Day Skippers find it helpful to practice all the key sailing manoeuvres such as MOB or reefing the main sail on a smaller yacht like 'Lily'.

There's more about fine-tuning the sails for efficient sailing and you can get a taster of some advanced sailing techniques too. Dinghy sailors also find Level 3 keelboat a useful step into yacht sailing and inland sailors are thrilled by the tidal experience of Morecambe Bay.
