MRSC is an RYA registered club and also an RYA recognised teaching establishment. We run both junior and adult training courses for our members covering a range of the RYA dinghy syllabi, we are also recognised to run RYA Powerboat courses covering Safety boat, levels 1 and 2 and deliver the RYA first aid course.
For full details of this year’s RYA Training programme see Events however we are also adding to these plans to meet demand, so please contact us for further details. Our dinghy training programme tends to run during April, May and June, opening the door to a busy summer of sailing for all participants and entry into the club’s junior race week in August for those aged 6 to 21. The Powerboat training tends to take place during the winter.
Additionally we have a very active junior contingent at the club, and throughout the season have regular parent led training sessions. These are run on a volunteer basis so we are keen to have family member’s young and old helping us out, and we do have a very friendly and active family membership base. There is a Facebook page for Juniors and their parents for you be confirm your attendance, see who else is coming, and offer support with rib cover and much more. Please search MRSC Junior Sailing and request to be a member.
There is also coaching sessions organised for the various junior classes sailed at the club, Feva, Tera and Laser. See details in the Events pages for dates and contact.
The club is lucky to own a number of boats that can be hired by members for a modest fee when not being used for the training sessions. There are 3 RS Teras, 3 RS Fevas, 3 Laser 2000s, A Wayfarer and an RS 400.
