Even a basic knowledge of First Aid can save a life, so it's no surprise that training is mandatory for RYA Instructors, and a valuable skill to have in any walk of life. Our RYA-approved course is aimed primarily at "boaty types", and covers areas of First Aid commonly encountered in a sailing/watersports environment, such as hypothermia and cold water shock.

In light of medical advances and changing advice, First Aid certificates are only valid for 3 years, after which it must be re-validated by attending another suitable course. MSC tries to organise at least one course per year to help keep the training team up to date. Non-members are more than welcome to join our courses, although preference will be given to club members.
