The ISA levels are as follows:

Cara Na Mara – 11th July to 15th July 2016 This programme is aimed at the 7-10 year olds. It provides a child centred approach to introducing children to sailing and the marine environment.

Level 2: Basic Skills 4th July to 22nd July 2016. Sailors become more competent at basic sailing manoeuvres.

Level 3: Improving skills 4th July to 22nd July 2016. Sailors focus on rigging; capsize recovery, sailing knowledge, boat handling, coastal knowledge and weather.

Level 4 – 4th July to 22nd July 2016 Sailors specialise in racing preparation and techniques. Modules include, Kites & Wires, Advanced Boat Handling, and Go Racing 1.

The instructing team is a highly motivated and talented and ensures safety, learning and fun for every sailor at all times. Mornings are full of energy, with everyone arriving at the club for 9:30 and hopefully down the slip and onto the water shortly after, led by the enthusiastic team of instructors. Lunch time is a great highlight, with a well-deserved break and a catch up with everyone in the park. Back out on the water for the afternoon for another session full of fun and learning.

Friday’s are jam packed with the ‘Junior Champs’ (involving every member of the course racing together for fantastic prizes. The sailing course day out is yet another fun and exciting adventure.

Overall the course is a fantastic experience for every member, developing advanced sailing skills and social skills while making new friends and having fun along the way. There is no better way to spend three weeks on the water!
