It is important that you understand that RYA training courses are progressive, and as such are designed for learning to sail and improving sailing skills. You are encouraged to practice these skills between stages and take any opportunities to experience sailing at other venues.

For this reason, certificates will only be awarded when the instructors are satisfied that all elements can be demonstrated to the standard approved for each stage.

If you are new to the area, and have the experience but not the paperwork, we are also happy to arrange assessments to make sure you are capable of independently sailing the club boats. In this case, you need not sign up for classes, but the other membership costs still apply.
