Dinghy Sailing Courses
RYA Sailing School
Our RYA Sailing School has had a fantastic year with 100s of new sailors taking to the water, learning new skills and, on our advanced courses, improving them. Many of our juniors join us on a fantastic journey that sees young sailors turn into advanced dinghy instructors.
Earlier this year four of our team obtained their RYA Senior Instructor qualification, a gruelling 4 days of testing their sailing and leadership skills. A culmination of training, dedication, leadership and lots and lots of fun at BLYM! Any of our sailors that started the year on their stage 1 and 2 course can become one of our fantastic team of instructors. Many of our team go on to teach sailing around the world and take up sailing careers.
We'd especially like to thank our exceptionally talented team for this year. Many, many hours of volunteering work. Join us on our laying up supper to recognise our team and celebrate everything that is good about BLYM.
