We are delighted to be hosting an RYA Dinghy Instructor (DI) Course during the February Half term of 2019, 18th - 22nd February, with a Pre-Entry assessment scheduled for the 10th February

This is the ideal opportunity for sailing clubs and centres to up-skill their volunteers and staff before the sailing season starts

The DI course will be run Monday to Friday with a mix of both theoretical and practical teaching, all based from the Mount Batten Centre utilising our unique location for excellent access to Plymouth Sound and our wide range of dinghies and powerboats.

The DI course will be run by Stuart Jones, a highly experienced RYA Coach/Assessor with over 20 years experience of delivering RYA Instructor courses
