2019 Training Dates

We intend to run the RYA day skipper course this year but still have a number of vacancies.  Details of the course etc are below.

The cost is a little fluid at this time but should be no more than 175, this includes the following:

Practice Charts and almanac, course booklet and exercises; set of navigation instruments (Portland plotter and dividers), soft eraser and pencil and 1 year’s membership of Reading Offshore Sailing club (if not already a member).

Location:  Pearson Hall, Pearson Road, Sonning, READING, RG4 6UL

Times:  0900-1700 with breaks for lunch and coffee/tea.


October 19
November 2, 16, 30
December 14
January 11, 25
February 8*

*(only if needed – if in instructors view more work is needed to pass the exams).

 The time between sessions is to allow homework exercises to be completed.  Experience has shown that failure to complete homework almost inevitably leads to failure in the exams. 

Please reply soon if you are interested. 

 We will be able to review (and trust to be able to reduce) the cost as soon as the class is committed and hope to do this by the end of September but will be asking for the funds up-front as we incur expenditure in obtaining the charts and other kit from the RYA and booking the hall which is not refundable in full.
