RYA Sailing

Become a Sailing Instructor

Training Courses

We run several RYA dinghy, keelboat or multihull instructor courses every year with resident Coach Assessors, Andrew Freshwater & George Thomson. Subject to demand, candidates who complete the Dinghy Instructor Course can further their development by doing an endorsement course over two days specialising in our keelboats or multihulls.

The Assistant Instructor Award (AI) provides recognition for the ‘in-house’ training given to experienced sailors intending to qualify as RYA dinghy instructors. The AI is a competent small boat sailor who has been trained to assist instructors in teaching sailing up to the standard of the Level 2 or Stage 3 courses. They must work under the supervision of an RYA Senior Instructor (SI) or the Chief Instructor of a Keelboat Training Centre.

Candidates must hold one of the RYA Sailing Scheme advanced modules and have the recommendation of their centre’s Principal.
