RYA Training Courses starting soon Featured

Written by
As you will no doubt know by now CYC are now a recognised RYA Training Centre. We will be running some training courses shortly. Dates for these courses as below:
 
RYA Start Sailing Stage 1 (Adults) 16th & 17th April 2016 9am-4pm
RYA Start Sailing Level 1 (Youths) 14th & 15th May 2016 9am-4pm
RYA Stage 2/Level 2 (Adults & Youths) 31st July & 14th August (Sundays) 9am-4pm
RYA Powerboat Level 2-any 2 Sundays throughout the year as demand requires.
 
We are aiming to have a Powerboat course PRE April 23rd. Those of you who have already expressed an interest please let myself, Mark Phillips, or any other committee member know asap and we'll get it started.
 
We will also be starting some "Club Nights". The first one will hopefully include a bit of an informal aide de memoir session on basic rope work, knots, splicing etc. We hope to do one with a refresher on chartwork after that one. Watch out for emails from Lindy via the social emails for these.
 
Come on beginners or experienced yachtsmen it's never too late to get into a dinghy. Refining those sailing skills in a dinghy will help with the yacht sailing - trust me. Look at Allen Brunton - successful dinghy sailor transposing skills into leading the fleet on the yacht racing scene. Come back Allen, you know you'll miss it. We'll certainly miss you from the racing - hope you're feeling better soon!
 
Look forward to seeing you in the dinghies soon.
