Certificate issuing criteria
Can sail a double-handed boat on all points of sail. Launch and return to a beach, jetty or mooring in moderate conditions.
As this course is held in a small dinghy, children should wear:
- Swimming costume for underwear
-Waterproof/windproof jacket to keep the wind off the upper body
- Warm hat
- Shoes that can (and will) get wet
We suggest children wear a lycra skin or rash vest under the wetsuit, not a cotton t-shirt. Cotton remains wet and will prevent the wetsuit from warming the body.
