Sunderland Yacht Club is an RYA training establishment and provides training in the following:
- Dinghy Sailing Levels 1 & 2
- Power Boat Levels 1 & 2 (including International Certificate of Competence)
- SRC VHF Radio Course
- RYA First Aid (one day)
In addition to the formal Dinghy Sailing courses the Club also provides regular coaching activities where Club members can take part in a controlled environment during the summer months. It is structured to encourage junior members onto the water in sailing dinghies, but is also open to adults who wish to learn. Since attaining RYA Volvo Championship Club status, SYC has access to RYA coaching resources proving a great benefit to those taking part.
Through continued investment the club also owns the necessary equipment required to successfully organise and run Training and Coaching events. You don't even need to own your own boat to participate, but there are a limited number of club boats, and the allocation of trainees to boats will be made based on the amount of time a particular participant has spent in a boat. Priority been given to those with the least experience. Participants in the training scheme are encouraged to progress towards boat ownership.
