Cadet Learn to Sail Week: RYA Stage 1&2

8-12 July 2024 (09:30-1700)

RYA Stage 1 & 2 Cadet Learn to Sail courses are aimed at complete beginners aged 11-16. 

Following the RYA syllabus for Stage 1 & 2 Dinghy sailing, ELYC training programs are run by a professional team, supported by volunteers. This course aims to provide a basic understanding of sailing, and award an RYA dinghy sailing certificate. 

Weather permitting, it is hoped that attendees will achieve a Stage 2 certificate, which will allow participation in further club activities. For more information on club activities click here.

This course is open to club members only. We welcome all new members. 

Participants must take out an Annual Membership of East Lothian Yacht Club before or when applying for a course.  If you are not already a member you can join here.

Please note that an Annual Membership is required to book this course. (Although there is an option to pay your membership monthly, please understand that you are committing to an annual membership). 

Participants should be: between 11-16yrs, confident in the water and able to swim 50m in light clothing.

Participants are supplied with Buoyancy Aids and Safety Helmets but are required to provide their own wetsuits, boots, etc. The Course FAQs can also provide you with additional information.

Certificates are awarded through the RYA scheme, and only awarded when skills can be shown at the correct level. It should be noted that while the club will endeavour to support all participants to achieve their certificate completion is not always possible, as abilities and confidence vary and the weather can provide some challenging conditions.

By booking on to this course you accept our training booking terms and conditions.
