COURSES AND DATES FOR 2017
We are an entirely voluntary members club, and our qualified instructors do not get paid. We run training to introduce people to the sport in the hope that they will share our passion for sailing and continue to sail with us, and so we require that any trainees join or are already members of Midland Sailing Club. Our RYA Levels 1 & 2 "Learn to Sail " courses include a heavily discounted membership of Midland Sailing Club. We do accept non-members for certain courses - these are marked with a * in the list below.
