Small single-handed boats are used with a maximum of 6 students to 1 instructor.
Stage 1 and 2 courses are planned for spring to summer which will provide the basics of sailing.
More advanced courses are planned for later.
It is not necessary to be a Scout or Explorer or to have done a taster session.
Participants who achieve Stage 2 may attend the Club to consolidate what they have learnt.
Arrive at the David Woodhead Centre, Nova Scotia Place, dressed ready to sail at 9.00 each day, and bring your log book if you have one.
Lunch and theory sessions are in the classroom at Pooles Wharf.
Bring a snack, packed lunch and drinks as required.
Clothes: Wetsuits are recommended, alternatively (and weather dependent) shorts, leggings / joggers, tee shirts, fleeces, lightweight cagoule and leggings (all preferably in synthetic fibres), hat (baseball/ wooly) and wet boots, daps or old trainers. Bring a towel and spare change of clothes in case you get wet and suncream and water in case it is sunny.
Jeans, wellies, hard soled shoes and crocks are not suitable.
The electronic registration and health form on http://ascss.org.uk/registration must be completed for each student before each course.
Bring appropriate clothing as most theory, snacks and lunch will be outside.
The changing room is currently closed (a COVID 19 requirement) and going home wet and wrapped up in a towel may be easier than changing outside.
Students must comply with the COVID 19 requirements we have in place at the time and will wear a face covering on shore, maintain space and sanitise hands regularly.
