For Serious Sailors
For the serious sailor a wide range of courses is available through our host club Carsington Sailing Club. Being a Recognised Training Centre by the Royal Yachting Association, means that courses for all kinds of sailing can be obtained from Dinghy Sailing to RYA Powerboat II certification. Winter theory courses cover Day Skipper to Yachtmaster Offshore. First Aid and VHF courses are run throughout the year.
Please bear in mind that although you can take people out in boats and demonstrate sailing without any qualifications you cannot issue certificates or purport to be a qualified sailing instructor without complying with the rules and guidelines set out by the RYA. In effect you must become a Recognised Training Establishment to do so. Another very important aspect of this activity is that you must ensure that you are covered by insurance. Talk to your insurance provider for this kind of information.
