This 5 day course covers all aspects of teaching
beginners and improvers to sail and is the first rung on the sailing instructor
ladder. During the week you will be taught the RYA’s teaching framework known as ‘The Method’ which
encompasses single and double handed sailing.
It is important you are as prepared as possible before arriving at the centre, making sure you have read a current copy of G14, G4 and G11 before the course and please remember to bring these with you.
In order to become a dinghy instructor, candidates need to fulfil some pre-entry requirements as follows;
Demonstrate sailing ability under the supervision of an RYA coach.

As the name suggests, these requirements are needed BEFORE attending the course and the evidence must be bought with you when you attend the course.
