Stage 2 teaches a range of sailing skills and knowledge to help in becoming a confident sailor.  It is a demanding course and particularly challenging to sail in Brancaster Staithe so many children will achieve some but not all of the skills required to pass in 3 days.  

Children sail in pairs in a Topper.   If the child doesn’t have a topper we will buddy them up with one that does.
