We are pleased to confirm that our next series of Boating for Beginners theory sessions start on Tuesday 8th March at 7pm at the Yacht Club on the Tongue in the centre of the harbour.

The sessions are held in the clubhouse – over five evenings from 7pm – 9:30 and are an informal programme around a variety of boating subjects. It’s very relaxed and we have a break for coffee or if you need something stronger the Bar will be open! You don’t need to bring anything and we will give you an RYA Competent Crew Skills book which may be useful later if you wish to do one of our practical sailing courses with us in the summer. The sessions also provide an opportunity to meet some of our RYA instructors.

The fee is £75 and includes Associate Membership of the Club for 2022.

Topics include:

1) Types of boats

2) Points of sail

3) Weather

4) Anchoring and mooring

5) Tides and currents

6) Nautical charts

7) VHF protocols

8) Lifejackets

9) Safety equipment

If you would like to join us, please let us know and you could either pay by cheque/card on the night or visit the shop section on the website.  https://douglasbayyachtclub.com/index.php/product/introduction-to-boating-8th-march/
