Sail a double handed boat as crew or helm, and solve a variety of problems afloat.
Assumed knowledge: we recommend applicants complete Start Racing and Improve Your Racing before applying to do Stage 4 as they will be sailing Laser 2000s or RS Fevas which suit older, stronger and more experienced sailors. We also expect further sailing experience to be undertaken in between courses. Please be prepared to show evidence of experience in log books, if requested.

Course content: Rigging, launching and recovery, sailing techniques and manoeuvres in crewed boats, recovering a man overboard
