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 a number of short courses for beginners and improvers over the summer months (details of 2017 courses will be posted soon). The RYA has recently given approval for the Training Committee to add dinghy instruction to the Club's list of RYA recognised courses for 2017.
It is important to emphasize that the Club is not a commercial RYA sea school, but 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.
15 cadets & 5 adults received dinghy training at Sutton Bingham sailing club during the June 2016 half term week. All gained new skills & confidence - congratulations to the following who gained RYA certificates:
