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.

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.

For more information or to make a booking enquiry, please contact .  Alternatively visit the Club in person on any Sunday between about 10:00 and 15:00 and ask for Lynn;  there will always be someone available to discuss our courses.

Powerboat training courses

We encourage adult 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 recognized as a qualification for boat charters in holiday centers in the UK and abroad.  The cost for the Powerboat course is £175.  Click here for powerboat course details on the RYA website.
