Portchester Sailing Club is an accredited RYA Training Centre, audited annually to ensure we run Youth and Adult courses within the RYA safety parameters and teaching framework. We offer both theory and practical RYA recognised courses for all boating sections of the Club, and can also test for International Certificate of Competence.
Our in-house courses are only available to our Club members, and are run by our team of volunteer RYA trained instructors. Due to the fact our instructors volunteer, we are able to offer much discounted course fees to our members compared to commercial training establishments.
On the water we offer Dinghy and Powerboat practical courses, onshore we offer yacht theory courses as well as practical courses in First Aid, Diesel Engine Maintenance, Marine Radio (SRC) and Safe and Fun.
We are always ready to welcome any club member who already has Instructor qualifications either as a member of the Team or for more 'casual' assistance with training, or indeed assist in the training of any member keen to become an instructor. Parents and volunteers to help with the preparation of boats and safety cover on the water are also very welcome.
