Learning to sail, improving your sailing
Each year DYC’s Sail Training Team organises two Spring courses for club members, one for those who have already acquired the basics of sailing (Improvers), and one separately for absolute beginners.
The courses follow the specifications set down by the RYA in its Start Sailing and Basic Skills modules. Those who successfully complete the courses will receive certificates for: Juniors – Stages 1, 2 & 3; Adults – Levels 1 & 2, all with tidal endorsement.
These courses are popular and usually fill up very quickly. If you miss out on the spring course, a beginners course is run in August.
Training courses are also provided locally by:
The Step-Up Training is for more advanced sailors. It encourages club members to try out some more demanding manoeuvres such as: sailing without a centreboard, anchoring, sailing without a rudder and sailing with an asymmetric spinnaker.
Dates for all training courses can be found on the Calendar.

We look forward to sailing with you.
