Better Sailing
RYA Level 3
Two ladies improving their sailing skills

Keelboat/Yacht Sailing On The Sea

Become a better sailor with 2 days of specialist coaching on the sea.

Great for experienced dinghy sailors moving to yacht sailing.

Next step after Keelboat Level 2.

Fantastic experience for improvers in the strong tides of Morecambe Bay. 

 "I've learnt more in these last 2 days than on all 10 days of my RYA Competent Crew and Day Skipper courses combined"


Enjoy two days of fabulous tidal sailing experience

After you've learnt to sail on Levels 1 & 2 you can use Level 3 to develop your sailing.  It's a more flexible syllabus tailored to your needs.  If you don't have your own boat to practise on it's a great way to gain more sailing experience on the sea.  You can learn more about fine tuning the sails and take more responsibility for sailing the boat.  It's a great course to consolidate everything you learnt on Keelboat Levels 1 & 2.  

Sailors come to Bay Sea School from a wide variety of previous experiences.  If you're not sure which level course is best for you right now, have a chat with John.  Level 2 is listed under 'Beginner Courses' on the website but it's a much more advanced course than the beginner Level 1 Start Sailing course.  It might be better to refresh your sailing skills on Level 2 first.  If you're a fairly new level 2 dinghy sailor moving onto the sea, we'd probably recommend a Level 2 Keelboat course first.  There's quite a lot to absorb about keelboat sailing in the tide so it's best not to rush through the courses.  With the small numbers on the boat we can move you on from wherever you are with your sailing.

The Level 3 course is used by many sailors such as:

  • Day Skippers, to refine things like MOB, reefing, sail trim & tidal skills on a more manageable yacht 
  • Experienced dinghy sailors progressing to yacht sailing
  • Milebuilders for more sailing experience
  • Levels 1 & 2 sailors taking the next step
  • Inland sailors for excellent tidal sailing experience

Conditions are different every time you sail on the sea so there's always something new to learn. That's one of the things that makes sailing with Bay Sea School in Morecambe such a compelling experience!

"The course was awesome. Thank you!"

"Was excellent and suited my present skills"

"The sailing with Deirdre was great, especially fine tuning the sails. 
And John's theory sessions were outstanding - so knowledgeable and clear"
