At present, KGSC is only offering RYA training courses to members of the club, but we are offering Taster Sessions to non-members.
The current cost to join the club is £231 for an annual membership (April to April). The benefits of joining the club are that we are able to offer formal RYA training in both sailing and powerboats at extremely low costs and additionally to offer informal sailing guidance (see Saturday – Better Sailing below) completely free of charge.
- RYA 1 – This two day course Introduces you to sailing with all you need to know to get afloat under supervision. You will learn how to sail in all directions, including an awareness of launching and recovering. Price – £90.00
- RYA 2 – This two day course builds on the skills acquired in the level 1. You will learn how to rig, launch, improve sailing skills in all directions, perform capsize recovery procedures and essential safety knowledge. Price – £90.00
RYA Powerboat 2 – This two-day entry level course provides the skills and background knowledge needed to drive a powerboat and is the basis of the International Certificate of Competence. King George recommend that all members have this qualification to ensure members can provide support boats with skilled personnel.
Option 1 – £90.00
Option 2 – Free of Charge – This is available to any member who commits to an additional four duties in the 24 months after taking this course.
Better Sailing Saturdays:
These supported sessions are free and available to all members most Saturdays from 10.00am. Members can use their own boats or Club boats are available for hire. We often see new members buying a boat when they join – Before making a decision on what to buy, we suggest you have a few sails in our club boats and chat with some of the long standing members who will be able to give guidance on how to make the correct choice.
Cost of club boat hire is £11 for four hours.
The club is now offering instructor-led Taster Sessions.
These sessions are open to non-members, so if you would like to give sailing a go but you weren’t sure how to organise it – come along to one of our taster sessions!
There is a charge of £30 per person.
