ELYC will be running a First Aid Course at the club. The instructor will be Anna Caldwell who has run very good courses at ELYC in the past.
An understanding the principles of First Aid can be one of the most useful qualifications for just about everyone, and may literally be a life saver. Injuries or illness may occur at any time when out sailing or boating so 1st Aid skills may be needed without warning – so be prepared!
The RYA First Aid course is specifically designed to cover the types of injury that may happen afloat as well as ashore. The certificate is a pre-requisite for all RYA Instructors, Coastal Skipper / Yachtmaster exam candidates, and applicants for Advanced Powerboat Courses.
The course fee is £20 and First Aid Books will be available on the day for an extra cost.
