Available Course & Events for On-line Booking

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we currently have a reduced programme of courses available.

Please select the right course from the list below. Members of Midland Sailing Club can book at a discounted rate:

Powerboat Courses:

We run RYA Powerboat Level 2 and safety boat courses for members and non-members of Midland Sailing Club. These are scheduled on demand and you must be 16 years or older to do them. Below is our current course schedule and each course is priced at £200 for Non Members.

RYA Powerboat Level 2

  • Tue, Oct 12th (09:00 – 17:00)
  • Wed, Oct 13th (09:00 – 17:00)

Spaces left: 2

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.

RYA OnBoard Club (Junior)

Please note that in order to take part in an OnBoard session juniors have to be able to sail at least to RYA Stage 1 standard. For less experienced junior sailors we are running regular training courses. Click Here for more information.
