Instructor showing the ropes...tying knots

Help others learn to sail

As part of being an RYA Training Institution we run courses for Instructors.  This ensures that you have the quality of instruction expected of such an establishment.  Instructors cover all aspects of sailing for their trainees, from showing them the ropes (quite literally and how to tie them!) to how to right yourself after a capsize.

Our Training Operations Policy can be found on our Documents page

Our courses for instructors are detailed below and more information can be found on Webcollect.
