By the end of the course, the successful sailor will be safety conscious and capable of sailing without an instructor on board in light to moderate conditions. Better sailing is intended to make the transition easier for those sailors wishing to progress further through the scheme, allowing for opportunity to practise and consolidate sailing techniques and experience some of the activities the advanced modules have to offer.
