RYA Training at AYC

The Club is keen to offer all those who go to sea, the opportunity to gain recognised qualifications. We are a Training Centre recognised by the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) to provide a range of shore based and on the water courses.

Shorebased RYA courses

VHF Radio

Diesel Engine

First Aid


Day Skipper

RYA Powerboat courses

Powerboat Levels 1 & 2

Safety Boat

All courses are run by RYA experienced and qualified instructors, the majority of whom are members of the AYC. The courses are provided on a Tutor/Student basis, in other words they are all classroom or practical lessons which are delivered face-to-face. This gives important advantages over online courses: individual support; access to training equipment and the development of a class identity, ethos and mutual support structure. They are also more fun!

Click on the links above for full details of the courses we are running in 2017. For a list of 2017 training dates click TRAINING PROGRAMME.

We have recently received approval from the RYA to add Dinghy Sailing to our list of recognised training courses. We plan to offer courses for both adults and cadets over the summer months - dates for these are still being finalised but will be advertised soon.
