Dinghy training courses
Our RYA qualified instructors run combined novice (RYA Level 1) and improver (RYA Level 2) courses each year in dinghy sailing; these follow the RYA adult syllabus:
RYA LEVEL ONE COURSE: Introducing novice sailors to all the skills they need to know to sail in light winds under supervision.
RYA LEVEL TWO COURSE: A course for those with a little experience, setting out the foundations of making decision and confident sailing in good conditions.
The combined Sailing courses run over two Wednesday evenings and two full weekends. A third weekend is mark as “Contingency” in case of the weather over the previous two weekends has been unfavourable. You will need to attend all dates to achieve the required standard of RYA 1 & 2 and receive your certificate. The Wednesday nights run from 19:00 – 21.30 and the Weekends run from 09:30 – 17:00. Places are limited and are offered on a first come basis. All students must be at least 18 years old. To register an interest/sign up please contact Lynn. She will email you Membership/ Enrollment and Terms and Conditions forms for you to return to her.
MKSC helps to keep the costs as low as possible because we want you to sail. But you do need to join the club! The joint cost is still lower than most commercial centers. The cost for a combined RYA Level 1 and 2 Dinghy course is £150, with a deposit required to secure your place at time of booking.

Powerboat training courses
We encourage both adult and junior members to become confident powerboat drivers and crews: our on-the-water activities rely on safety boat cover and qualified volunteer crews to ensure everyone’s safety. RYA Powerboat Level 2 certificates are also the first step to becoming an instructor, and are recognised as a qualification for boat charters in holiday centres in the UK and abroard.
