Powerboat Courses:

We run RYA Powerboat Level 2 and safety boat courses for members and non-members of Midland Sailing Club. These courses are two days, so when making the booking you are signing up to all dates shown. You must also be 16 years or older to do the course. Below is our current course schedule and each course is priced at £225 for Non Members.

First Aid Courses:

Even a basic knowledge of First Aid can save a life, so it’s no surprise that training is mandatory for RYA Instructors, and a valuable skill to have in any walk of life. Our approved RYA course is aimed primarily at watersports users, and covers areas of First Aid commonly encountered in a sailing/watersports environment, such as hypothermia and cold water shock.

These will be advertised on this page when it becomes available.
