Whilst we do not offer any official training, Chew Valley Lake Sailing Club do offer various training courses that may be of interest. Some of these courses can cost anywhere up to £300, whereas Chew Valley are able to offer these courses to members for as little as £20. They are, however, subject to availability:
- RYA Powerboat Level 2 - This qualification will allow you to helm a powerboat on inland waters. It is a pre-requisite to any instructor based RYA qualifications
- RYA Safetyboat - This or the Advanced Rescue Helm qualification is required by any helm providing safety cover at Chew Valley Lake
- First Aid - This qualification is a pre-requisite to any instructor based RYA qualifications.
- Assistant Instructor/Dinghy Instructor
- Advanced Rescue Helm - This qualification is Chew Valley specific but is equivalent to the RYA Safetyboat qualification, and so is required by any helm providing safety cover at Chew Valley Lake
If you are interested in one of these courses, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pass you on to the correct people
