Assistant Instructor Course

For Tamesis members wishing to assist in RYA sailing training courses (as will be offered by Tamesis in 2015). Assistant Instructor is the first stage towards becoming a qualified Instructor, for which a season’s practical training work will be required after the Assistant Instructor course.
Dates: Sunday afternoons 08/15/22/29 March
Cost: no charge for instruction


RYA Level 1 Sailing Course

For members and in particular non-members who are interested in training to start sailing. This course begins just 2 weeks after the Tamesis/RYA “Push the Boat Out” Open Day when the club hopes to welcome members of the public new to sailing.
Dates: Sunday afternoons 24/31 May, 07/14 June
Cost: to be advised


RYA Level 2 Sailing Course

For members and in particular non-members who are interested in consolidating basic sailing skills taught at Level 1. This course is a natural follow-on from Level 1.

  1. Excellent news, Alan and Eric.
    Great to see this important intiative moving ahead. I’ll be there for the Asistant Dinghy Instructor course. Come on all you Tamesis sailors. For RYA training we need instructors – that’s you!
