Dear Fellow Member

From various discussions with members we've ascertained there is a desire for adult sailing training. There are some programmed adult training events, but we'd like to expand this to include structured RYA Level 1 and Level 2 courses. Our present purpose is to gauge interest in this idea. 

Our initial thoughts are that the courses are done over two weekends with sailing on the Saturday and Sunday. We are considering running the programme over three weekends with the idea that you attend two of the weekends – this to allow people to better manage their diaries. We propose to run the course using the Club's Laser Bahias with three adult trainees and one Dinghy Instructor per boat. There would be several boats out concurrently, some doing the RYA 1 course, and others RYA 2. The several boats would be overseen by a Sailing Instructor.

The proposed dates are Sat/Sun, July 22/23, 29/30 and August 18/19.  To complete an RYA 1 or RYA course you will need to do 2 weekends, and each of these weekends must be a Sat/Sun (in other words, you can’t do a Saturday one weekend and a Sunday another weekend).

To see a description of RYA Levels 1 and 2, please click here.

Costs will be minimal, and will cover expenses only.  Final costs are subject to uptake, but will probably be in the region of £120 for the entire course. 

If you are interested, please do the following:

  • Complete an online poll indicating your availability:

  • Send an email indicating your interest to Lester Korzilius via the office

These training courses are for ESC Club members only.
