In our drive to further improve the facilities on offer at the Royal Yorkshire Yacht Club we have been looking into the training sector.
Building on the success of the short revision courses run by Nigel we have agreed to team up with Yorvik Sailing. This will enable the club to offer the full spectrum of RYA training courses on the Yachtmaster Scheme. This is the first step to becoming an RYA accredited training centre.
For details on formal training throughout the summer of 2019 please follow the link
RYA Day First Aid and VHF courses are available at the Club athttps://www.ryyc.org.uk/results
If the above link does not work Nigel Foster can be contacted using the club directory.
We will start by running some one day courses through the summer followed by some structured longer courses throughout the winter months.
Although initially the training is biased towards keel boats, Nigel is looking to develop dinghy training, encouraging new instructors to bring on the youth team.
If any members want to get involved with the training or even become an instructor please contact Nigel or Phil in the office.
