If you have tried sailing before and believe that you could take your skills a step further, then try and obtain your RYA Level One Sailing certificate. RYA qualifications are known and respected the world over. This is an introduction level where there is no need for any experience just a love for the water. During this course you will learn how to sail in all directions, including an awareness of launching and recovering.
