    This Dinghy Sailing course is designed to follow the RYA "Start Sailing" and "Basic Skills" (Levels 1 & 2) Adult syllabus. 

    On successful completion of this course you will be able to sail a dinghy in any direction and rig and launch in moderate weather conditions. The RYA Level 2 certificate is an Internationally recognised sailing qualification and an indication that the holder has a basic level of understanding and practical competency.

    The syllabus covers practical sessions such as rigging, launching and recovery, sailing techniques and manoeuvres, ropework and capsize recovery. Background theory includes subjects such as "rules of the road", basic meteorology, clothing and equipment and emergency equipment.

    Tuition is given by trained and qualified RYA dinghy instructors with an emphasis on safety and fun! There will be Safety Powerboats on the water at all times to ensure your safety afloat.

    The course will be run over 2 Thursday evenings and 2 weekends to give you maximum time to fulfil the requirements of the syllabus. It is really important that you can attend ALL of the practical and theory sessions as it is not guaranteed we can help you catch up with things missed.

      

      Autumn Course

      Theory evenings 7.30 - 9pm

      29 Aug and 5 Sept

      Practical weekends 9 - 4  

      31 Aug & 1 Sept and 7 & 8 Sept

    Please note that the minimum age for the RYA Adult courses is 16 (there is no maximum age!).

    Otley Sailing Club prides itself in truly offering "Sailing for All" and as such, we welcome disabled sailors on our sail training courses. We have trained and experienced volunteers who are used to dealing with disabilities of all kinds so virtually anyone can enjoy the thrill of sailing!

    Barts Bash 2019!


    Let's aim to get around 30 boats out on the lake!  There are a number of trophies up for grabs today:

    * Shipley Salver Trophy (overall winner)


    * Ladies Trophy (top placed female sailor)

    * Ladies Crew Trophy (top placed female crew sailor)

    * Junior Helm Trophy (top placed junior helm sailor)

    * Wrigglesworth Junior Trophy (second placed junior helm sailor)

    * Junior Crew Trophy (top placed junior crew sailor)

    Barts Bash racing will start at 11.00AM on Sunday 15th September. Please remember that you need to register on the Barts Bash website by clicking here. There will be a voluntary £5 entry for the race - all proceeds will go to the Bart's foundation.

    If you don't have a boat you can hire (via the website) one of the 5 club Picos or be oh so daring and hire one of the new club Hartleys!

    For those who wish to make a weekend of it the club is open for camping on the Saturday evening. We'll even run a night race if there's any wind!

        

    BACKGROUND (from the event website: http://www.bartsbash.com/post/14-15-september-2019): Bart’s Bash is a global sailing race taking place at hundreds of venues, with thousands of sailors in hundreds of different classes of boat around the world. This incredible event works on the assumption that sailing venues host their races at weekends and we invite them to unite in one colossal global sailing event. Put simply it’s the day the world goes sailing!

    It's a day the sailing community remembers Andrew 'Bart' Simpson, a double Olympic medallist who tragically lost his life whilst training for the America's cup in 2013. Bart’s Bash is an annual fundraising and participation campaign promoted by the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation (ASSF). Each individual event is organised by a venue which is the organising authority for all activities at their site.

    If you have any further questions just drop me an email. 

    Best wishes,

    Christopher Dent (chris.m.dent@gmail.com)
