If you've completed your Improving Skills and want to develop your sailing, this course will help you to optimise the performance of your dinghy in all wind conditions. Advanced Boat Handling is the foundation course for advanced techniques and provides the necessary skills for anyone wishing to progress onto Kites & wires and Adventure Sailing Courses.   

We have both 5 day and 10 day Advanced Boat Handling Courses - We would highly recommend going for the 10 day course if you haven't had much sailing practice since completing your Improving Skills.
