Dinghy Sailing or Cruising Scheme?
So you have decided to take the first step and learn how to sail. The next question you need to ask yourself is whether you would like to sail big boats or smaller boats. We are fortunate enough to be able to offer both sailing schemes at DOSC:
The first one being the Dinghy Schemewhich is small boat sailing, where you will get wet! It is often a good introduction to sailing as you will get a good feel for the boat, and will immediately notice how every movement you make and tweaking you do affects the movement of the boat. This kind of sailing is often more accessible for many sailors once they have acquired their certification.
The 2nd scheme we offer is the Cruising Scheme. This is generally bigger boat sailing which is done on a boat with crew and cabins, and you are less likely to get wet! This scheme is ideal for those wishing to Crew & Skipper bigger boats and for those wishing to bareboat charter their own yacht.
Once you have decided what kind of sailing you wish to do, please contact us via the enquiry page and we can assist with getting you onto the water!
