New RYA National Sailing Scheme for 2002

The new RYA National Sailing Scheme provides modern compact packages for dinghy and keelboat sailors that can be 'bolted' together to suit individual lifestyles in the latest boat designs.
Aiming to provide a simple, versatile and easy to understand learning framework for small boat sailing in all its forms, the new scheme means that after initial training (Level 1 and 2) sailors can choose from a range of options, depending on the type of activity they wish to pursue.
Rather than offering the 'ladder' from Level 1 to 5, the scheme will promote the different aspects of the sport without the progression of one course leading to the next. There will no longer be a formal requirement for people to gain experience between courses after Basic Skills (Level 2).
The scheme will be available in dinghies and keelboats and for the first time, the multihull syllabus is included in the new logbook G4. Certificates will continue to be 'coastal' 'offshore' or 'inland', with courses in the Mediterranean being 'coastal'.
The new scheme will have many advantages, making it easier for clubs and professional schools to run courses over weekends and increasing its appeal to the overseas holiday market.
