***UPDATE*** We have now split the July course in to two parts. The 7th and 8th July can be booked seperately for those just wishing to complete level 1 These courses are great for anyone with little or no experience as an introduction to sailing and are unable to commit to all three weekends for the level 1&2 combined course.
