Yacht Sailing On The Sea

RYA Level 3 keelboat
Take the next step after Beginner Levels 1 & 2. Progress your sailing on the sea with 2 days of specialist tuition.

Good 2-day conversion course for competent dinghy sailors. Brilliant way to get back into sailing with fantastic experience in the strong tides of Morecambe Bay. 

 "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

The syllabus for RYA Level 3 keelboat is geared towards building confidence sailing on the sea. You've covered all the basics on Levels 1 & 2. Now you need more practice and time on the water to consolidate your new skills. If you don't have your own boat to practise on, Level 3 Better Sailing is a great opportunity for you to progress further with your sailing. 

Sailors come to this course from a wide variety of previous experiences. If you're not sure which level course to choose, have a chat with John first or just start with a Level 2 course as a refresher. The more coaching you get at this stage, the safer & more confident you'll be when you eventually skipper a boat on your own.

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

  • Day Skippers, to practice MOB and reefing under sail on a smaller, more manageable yacht 
  • Dinghy sailors progressing to yacht sailing
  • Milebuilders wanting more sailing experience
  • Beginners moving on from Levels 1 & 2
  • Inland sailors wanting to experience tidal sailing

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!

And John's theory sessions were outstanding - so knowledgeable and clear"
