    Training:  This is course covers the RYA teaching methods for beginners.  Candidates will be assessed on their teaching ability with beginners.  Successful candidates will have their logbook signed and will be awarded the AI certificate by their Principal or Senior Instructor.

    Eligibility: To be accepted onto the OSC AI course you must:

    1. Be a member of OSC.

    Role: The assistant instructor (AI) award provides recognition for the ‘in-house’ training given to experienced sailors intending to qualify as RYA dinghy, keelboat or multihull instructors. At OSC we specialise in Dinghy Sailing.  The AI is a competent small boat sailor who has been trained to assist instructors in teaching sailing up to the standard of the Level 2 or Stage 3 courses.  They must work under the supervision of an RYA senior instructor (SI) or the chief instructor of an RYA training centre.  The AI’s training is limited to assisting qualified instructors and does not include first aid or powerboat handling.  Assistant Instructors must never work without direct supervision.

    This dinghy sailing course is the first stage of the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme and is great way to start enjoying the sport of sailing.  It is designed for complete beginners and no prior experience of knowledge is required. It is opened to all children from 8 to 16 years of age who are able to swim at least 100m.

    Tuition is given by trained and qualified RYA dinghy instructors with an emphasis on safety and fun! There will be Safety Powerboats on the water at all times to ensure your safety afloat.

    What will I learn?

    This course is all about dipping your toe in to the world of sailing. The main elements of the course include launching and recovery, steering, parts of the boat and basic sailing.  At the end of the course you'll be able to steer a boat and understand the basic principles of sailing.

    What kit do I need?

    If you have your own buoyancy aid please bring this along. If not, we are happy to lend you one free of charge. Also, wet suits are strongly recommended, especially in spring and autumn. Unfortunately the club does not have any wet suits available for loan. Sailing boots or neoprene beach shoes need to be worn (or trainers that you don't mind getting wet). Crocs or similar are not suitable as they tend to be too slippy and fall off feet too easily.  Otley Sailing Club provide the boats :-)

    You also need a RYA Youth Sailing Scheme Logbook.  This tracks your progression through the whole RYA training scheme and is a place to stick your certificates.  A logbook can be purchased during the checkout process.

    When is the course?

    The course is on Sunday 29th April 2018, starts at 9:00am and finishes at 16:00pm.  However, please be down at the club house by 8:45am so you have time to sign-in and get kitted-up so you will be ready to start at 9:00am. 

    What qualification do I get?

    On successful completion of this course you will be awarded the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme Level 1 certificate.

    How much is the course?

    The course is £15 for members of Otley Sailing Club and £30 for non-members.  This is non-refundable.

    What can I do after this course?

    On successful completion of this course, you may enrol on the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme Level 2 course.

    Sailing for All

    Otley Sailing Club prides itself in truly offering "Sailing for All" and as such, we welcome disabled sailors on our sail training courses. We have trained and experienced volunteers who are used to dealing with disabilities of all kinds so virtually anyone can enjoy the thrill of sailing.
