HKSF LEVEL 1

Introduction to sailing - The aim of this course is to provide a brief experience of dinghy sailing for someone who has never sailed before. By the end of the course, participants will have had a short introduction to the sport of dinghy sailing, including basic boat handling techniques and essential background knowledge. It is recommended that all participants consolidate this short introduction with the Basic Skills Course - Level 2. The emphasis of this course will be largely practical.

HKSF LEVEL 2

Basic skills - By the end of the course the successful sailor will be safety conscious, have a basic knowledge of sailing and be capable of sailing a dinghy without an Instructor on board in light winds. The majority of conventional beginners' courses cover both Level 1 and 2 and are normally of not less than 30 hours duration: the syllabus below details those items not listed in Level 1. The emphasis of this course will be largely practical.

HKSF LEVEL 3

Improving techniques - By the end of the course, the successful sailor will have a competent, safe, practical approach to the sailing of small open boats and will be capable of sailing and making seamanlike decisions in moderate conditions.

It will be assumed that every student starting this course has already mastered the practical skills and absorbed the background knowledge required for Level 2. In practical terms, this implies a season (recorded in an HKSF logbook-9 months) of sailing between courses.

The duration of this course will be no less than 30 hours.

HKSF LEVEL 4

Advanced skills - By the end of the course, the successful sailor should have a confident, safe,seamanlike approach to sailing and will be capable of handling a high performance sailing dinghy (normally in a dinghy with a spinnaker and trapeze) in strong wind conditions of at least 11 knots (Force 4 on the beaufort scale)

A competant and fluid level of sailing is required to benefit from this course – eg: completion of Level 3 or equivalent experience. In practical terms, this implies a season ( recorded in HKSF logbook – 9 months) of sailing between courses. the duration of this course will be no less than 30 hours
