RYA Dinghy training
AYC aims to help cadets and adults develop their skills in a way that is complementary to the way that the RYA teaches and offers some dinghy training for beginners and improvers over the summer months. Dinghy training is also included in the annual Cadet Activities Week (not RYA certificated).
The RYA has recently given approval for the Training Committee to add dinghy instruction to the Club's list of RYA recognised courses. A programme of RYA courses for adult and cadet members is therefore being planned for the 2018 season.
If you are an AYC member and are interested in booking a place on an RYA course next year please contact the training secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org) stating the level/stage course you would be interested in.
For more details of the course content and requirements please see the RYA website.
It is important to emphasize that the Club is not a commercial RYA sea school and therefore does not offer dinghy training courses to non-AYC members. Being a dinghy sailing RTC allows us to certificate the courses we run for our members. If a suitable course is not available at AYC, members also have the chance to complete stages/levels of the RYA National & Youth Dinghy Sailing Schemes at nearby centres.
