Meet some of our members

Sutton Sailing Club

Our sailing club is what the members make it, and at Sutton Sailing Club we have a real emphasis on creating a friendly, warm, inviting atmosphere.  Everyone is keen to help each other, whether it be as instructors or  lending a helping hand with rigging a boat. Whatever your level of skill or confidence, we are always keen to lend a hand and gain new members to our club.  We have many social sailing days throughout the year, so members and their families are always very welcome.

The Instructors 

 

Although we may occasionally call in instructors with specialist skills or to refresh our own ideas, most of the training at the club is undertaken by club members who have gained their RYA instructor certificates. RYA Dinghy Instructors have to demonstrate their sailing competance during a 2 day pre-assessment and complete a 4 day assessment course looking at their capabilities to teach the course elements. They must also hold an up to date first aid certificate, and be CRB checked. Senior Instructors have passed a further assessment on their ability to properly organise and execute a programme of training within RYA guidelines.
