DINGHY PROGRAM - AN OVERVIEW
"Learn to Sail and Race a Dinghy or Catamaran"
The Yachting Australia Dinghy Program makes learning to sail a fun and educational process. The syllabus is clearly defined and presented in a highly visual and bright logbook that students can use to record their progress through each of the five modules of the syllabus.
The Dinghy Program is for those wishing to learn the basics of sailing dinghies or catamarans. It is designed to teach students how to sail, starting with the essential skills in the first module, "Start Sailing 1". More advanced skills and techniques are gradually introduced as students progress through the syllabus so that by the end they will be ready to start racing at their local sailing club. While it is not essential to start at the beginning, it will be harder for students to master the more advanced skills if they are not familiar with the basics.
To find out further details about the Dinghy Program, search the Yachting Australia website for a sailing school in your area. If you are interested in becoming an instructor, please contact your MYA.
