MAKE the most of the onset of spring by setting sail on a new course.

Worcestershire County Council's Upton Warren Outdoor Education Centre, Worcester Road, Bromsgrove, is running a series of two-day courses for people aged 14 and above on various dates from Saturday, March 15, to Sunday, November 2.

The Courses are Royal Yachting Association accredited and cost £145 per person for level one, including a log book and handbook, and £135 per person for level two.

Alistair Hodgson, operations manager at Upton Warren, said: "As spring approaches, it’s a chance for people to be out on the water and learning new skills.

"The fact that these courses are RYA accredited is a great boost which may mean that those who take them up may want to develop their skills further in the future."
