Training at TBYC

Published by under Club Notices,Racing

The 2016 Sail Training dates have now been published on the “Sail Training” page available from the Sidebar or . Full details of the requirements and dates are listed. Stage 1 starts in May and Stage 2 in April but please get you applications in early.

Unfortunately Southend Marine Activity Centre has closed therefore for the foreseeable future it is assumed that our and other Yacht Clubs will be the main locations to complete courses. So it is a good opportunity for us to remind you we do hold other courses that may also be of interest, many tutored by volunteers to keep the cost down.

We usually hold two RYA Power Boat Level 2 courses a year. These courses are always oversubscribed so just requesting a place does not guarantee entry. Priority is usually then given to those members that will be actively operating the club RIBS. If you are interested please email Ken at [email protected] .

First Aid courses are also organised at the club with an external organisation and these are advertised when they happen (although there is one happening on the 20th February). For more information email [email protected] .
