Redesmere Sailing Club is an accredited RYA Training Centre and RYA Champion Club and as such, is committed to providing high quality training to Members of all ages and sailing abilities.
Our accreditation enables us to teach and examine candidates under various RYA training schemes. These include; The National Dinghy Sailing Scheme, the Youth Sailing Scheme, the Powerboat Scheme and the Emergency First Aid Scheme.
Our dedicated training team is made up of qualified volunteer instructors, supported by experienced helpers, who run all of our RYA approved training courses.
More information on training courses, dates and prices is available under Training Programme & Course Application, in the Club Training Calendar, or can be downloaded in the annual Training Programme (below).
Applying for Training Courses
Training courses are available to all Club members. Online application for training places opens in mid-February, via this website. Hard copy applications can be made from one week after that date using forms available from the Clubhouse and this website. Online application is strongly recommended as places for first preference courses are allocated strictly on a first come first served basis. The number of places on each course depends on the availability of instructors and the number of boats available as well as the age and experience of the candidates involved. Once an offer of a course place is made, the full course fee is payable within 21 days, otherwise the place may be offered to other people on the waiting list.
All course members are required to purchase the relevant RYA logbooks, if they do not already possess them from previous training courses. Also available and recommended are the companion handbooks, which give more details of the syllabi and detailed training guidance.
If you would like more information about course availability and booking please contact Rachel Ward, Training Principal, (firstname.lastname@example.org).
