Day Skipper and Competent Crew Course
Is anybody interested in doing their Day Skipper or Competent Crew courses? I am looking at the idea of running one or more courses if there is interest.
These courses are 5 days and I would probably run from a Wednesday through to a Sunday. This would only mean taking 3 days holiday to do the course. At this stage I cannot finalise the prices. Factors that influence the price are High or Low Season (ie do you want to do in the summer?) and number of people on the yacht. Normally we would have 5 candidates but if you wanted to pay more and have a smaller number on the course this would be possible. Price range would be £400-£600 depending on which of the options was finally chosen.
Please register if you are interested and an event will be published on the website when there is sufficient interest for us to book the course.
To register for any event, you will need to be a Member or Temporary Member.

Please email me or phone me to discuss when you want to do the course and what your preferences are:
RYA First Aid Course
Duration 1 Day
Instructors: Peter and Carol-Anne Pocock Starlight Coaching.
The club has used the Pocock's for a number of years and they have a very broad experience of sailing and first aid and give a really good days training.
They have always been praised by attendees of previous courses as particularly knowledgeable trainers.
Member Cost: £75
Non Member Cost: £85 (This includes 6 months temporary membership)
This RYA course is designed to teach attendees all aspects of first aid on a yacht. Whilst hopefully most of us are unlikely to finish up in a liferaft at sea most of us are likely to have to administer some kind of first aid when sailing. The course is broad ranging but particularly useful in covering the life threatening events that can occur on a boat like how to deal with an unconscious casualty, heart attacks,hypothermia etc.
If you sail regularly you should have your first aid up to date. (RYA First Aid only lasts 3 years)
If you are a Day skipper or Coastal skipper you must have your first aid up to date.
You will need to bring your lunch, notepad and pen.
