Next step after Keelboat Level 2.

Great for experienced dinghy sailors moving on to yacht sailing.

Fantastic tidal sailing experience for established sailors.

 "I've learnt more in these last 2 days than on all 10 days of my RYA Competent Crew and Day Skipper courses combined"


Enjoy two days of fabulous tidal sailing experience

After you've learnt the basics of how to sail on Levels 1 & 2, Level 3 helps you become a more confident sailor.  It's a flexible course that can be tailored to your own needs.  If you don't have your own boat it's a great way to gain more sailing experience on the sea.  You'll learn more about fine tuning the sails and if you're ready, take more responsibility for sailing the boat without the help of the instructor.  It's a great course to consolidate what you learnt on Keelboat Levels 1 & 2.  

Sailors come to Bay Sea School from a wide variety of previous experiences.  Some are very rusty cruisers and others have never sailed on the sea before.  It can sometimes be better to refresh your sailing skills on a Level 2 course first.  And if you're a fairly new level 2 dinghy sailor moving onto the sea, we'd recommend a Level 2 Keelboat course first.  Get in touch if you'd like more advice.

The Level 3 course is used by many sailors such as:

  • Day Skippers, to refine things like MOB, reefing, sail trim & tidal skills on a more manageable yacht 
  • Experienced dinghy sailors progressing to yacht sailing
  • Mile-builders for more sailing experience
  • Levels 1 & 2 sailors taking the next step
  • Inland sailors for excellent tidal sailing experience

Conditions are different every time you sail on the sea so there's always something new to learn. That's one of the things that makes sailing with Bay Sea School in Morecambe such a compelling experience!
