Yeah, Earlswood and Redditch SC are closer, I know about Redditch SC (But i never realised how many sailing clubs are so close!) I wouldn't mind travelling a bit further to find the right club, a better lake/resevoir, where the people are nice and welcoming...

In regards to the RYA level 1/2 courses.. what level does this put you at? Does this allow you the knowledge to become a member and get out there and perfect the skills?

At Bartley - the RYA level 1&2 course.. I am a little confused, is the stated cost per level, or is it for the levels 1&2 courses?

Dan.

Danny, did you get an answer to that question as I'm wondering the same thing?

Level one is the absolute basics and should be followed as closely as possible (time wise) by level 2.  Level 2 is the recognised certificate of competence that will allow you to go to a commercial centre and hire a dinghy then manage it in reasonable wind strength.  You can join a club without any knowledge at all and can also learn by crewing for more experienced sailors, plus many clubs run training courses which you can do once you are a member.  The best bet is to visit plenty of clubs in your area, talk to the members, see what is on offer and then choose which you want to join.  You don't have to do your course at a commercial centre; many smaller clubs offer quality tuition.
the same, but different...
