Training

Training is a very important part of our activities and we are keen to offer our facilities to new sailors and youngsters. A fleet of single-handed and doublehanded dinghies is available for instruction, social sailing and racing.

We have a committed group of volunteer instructors and experienced club sailors who are happy to assist our novices and young sailors. Our volunteers promote a safe and friendly environment for people to come and join in a sporting activity with help and guidance on hand at all times.

BCSC is a recognised RYA Training Centre and is subject to the rigours of their annual inspection with regards to safeguarding of students and safety on the water. We are very proud of our status which demands that all our equipment, instructors and safety equipment meet the RYA’s very high standards.

We arrange for, or run in-house, different levels of RYA courses for our members throughout the sailing season and beyond. These include dinghy sailing, power boating courses, first aid courses, race officer courses and VHF radio courses when needed. In addition to structured training, we offer taster sessions and opportunities to crew with our regular sailors during social sailing sessions and in club races.
