Assistant Instructor

If you want to do more sailing and not be involved with racing, then this is the course for you. The Assistant Instructor course will allow you to help out on the RYA adult courses which we run at the club and can be used as a stepping stone to becoming a fully fledged Dinghy Instructor. The 2 day course will familiarise you with all the clubs training boats and the key manoeuvres needed to help teach people how to sail effectively and safely. Being able to sail reasonably well is a pre-requisite for this course.
AI course 12 - 14 April
