RYA Shorebased Courses
RYA Yachtmaster and Day Skipper courses
These courses are run as weekly evening classes over the winter months (October to March/April). The Day Skipper course is a comprehensive introduction to cruising for inexperienced skippers. The Yachtmaster course provides advanced training for more experienced skippers building on the Day Skipper course.
As a result of the number of students who have enrolled for the Day Skipper course and the size of the room that we have booked, we have had to split the class into two. One class will now run on a Wednesday evenings and one on Thursday evenings, both from 7 to 9pm. One consequence of this is that there are now some vacancies on both nights, providing the opportunity for anyone who was interested, but could not make Thursday evenings to sign up. Please note that the course is relevant to both sailors and power boaters.
If this is of interest, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org including a telephone number and a convenient time to contact you if you wish to discuss the course with one of the tutors.
The courses commence Wednesday 2nd October or Thursday 3rd October
Please see below for more details.
PLEASE NOTE the venue is Colyford Village Hall due to refurbishment of the AYC clubhouse this winter.
