Sunsail Level 1 Sailing Courses & Schools

Level 1 sailing courses are ideally suited to sailors who are already familiar with the basics of sailing and have some previous experience. 

Sunsail Level 1 Courses are intermediate level courses designed to help sailors to improve on their skills and add to their knowledge and confidence to take their sailing further, perhaps in readiness for one of Sunsail’s Flotilla or Yacht Charter holidays in the UK or abroad.  

On a Sunsail Level 1 course, our fully qualified RYA instructors will take students on from a basic level of understanding and competence to a position where they feel ready to take on a more challenging sailing experience. This opens a whole new range of sailing destinations for you to choose from.
