RYA Accreditation

WWSC is aspiring to become an RYA accredited training centre in 2017. This doesn't mean that we will be offering training on a commercial basis or non-members; and in most respects the shape of the programme we offer during the Sailing Season won't change.

The committee considers that there are three key advantages of gaining accreditation:

  1. It provides an external validation of our existing practice and the opportunity to demonstrate to our insurers, parents and stakeholders that we are operating safely and responsibly
  2. It will enable club Dinghy Instructors (DIs) to 'log hours' whilst working at the club, making it easier for them to re-validate their qualifications on expiry
  3. It will allow us to certificate participants' proficency and skills; something which is in increasing demand by parents, schools etc.

At this point our intention is to offer accredited training for junior members only; we have no plans to provide adult oriented courses such as RYA Powerboat Level 2 which are already easily accessed at neighbouring clubs.
