The first weekend will be taught at Portishead marina or at the Lake grounds on single handed Topper dinghies, the second weekend will be taught at Sugarloaf bay in 2-3 man Vision dinghies, with instructors alongside you.  This course aims to get attendees familiar with the basics of sailing and confident with sailing in the conditions found in the Bristol channel, alongside experienced sailors.  Discounts will be available for those joining PYSC.
