Helen & Ian had never sailed before. They had a dream of one day sailing off into the sunset. They booked onto this RYA level 1 beginners yacht sailing course called 'Start Sailing.' It's the best RYA sailing course to do if you want to learn all the basics in just 4 days of instruction. They chose to learn to sail on the sea in a keelboat like this because there's lots of room to move around. And, keelboats are ideal user-friendly yachts for adult beginners. They are safe & stable because they have a fixed keel which stops them from capsizing in the way dinghies are prone to do! You stay comfortably in this type of boat at all times.
Helen & Ian were so thrilled with their new sailing hobby they went on to complete their beginners learn to sail course with the next 2-day course called 'Basic Skills' - level 2.
Over the next few years they returned many times for more courses with Bay Sea School. Their sailing journey continues and they're now qualified to charter yachts themselves as Day Skippers. Recently they've completed their Yachtmaster theory course and hope to do their practical next summer. Then the plan is to retire and buy their own yacht!
