Dinghy, Keelboat & Multihull Instructors

Instructors teaching the National Sailing Scheme need to be qualified for the type of boat in which they teach, ie dinghies, small keelboats or multihulls.

In addition the instructor certificate is endorsed to show whether you are qualified to teach on inland or coastal waters.
