Adult Skills & Qualifications

Welcome to the RSC Adult Skills & Qualifications page.

 It is pleasing to note that the Club encouraged attendees from a wide age range which suiting the aspirations of the Club to maintain and extend our boat operator skill base during Club racing and open events in the future.

 The use of WebCollect will prove useful in gauging numbers of potential attendees, and then taking bookings. Keep watching the Club’s Facebook page as the general plan will be to announce potential courses through Facebook, then individuals can source the complete course information and book through WebCollect.

I have been asking various experienced sailors within the Club if they would be willing and able to pass on their skills to both current and new members. The response was promising, so all you have to do is ask and I will try and locate a member to pair you up with. This should help you to progress and develop your sailing skills - but you must be willing to help yourself and not expect it all to be done for you!

I hope that there will be an opportunity to form some sort of Powerboat club for all ages as a means to prepare members for PB courses and of course to carry on supporting them with further training within a group environment. This way our trained members will be better able to operate safety through competent RIB Driving.

If you are interested and require help or just some directed guidance, or just wish to get more information then drop a quick email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and someone will get back to you.

The list of courses below will, when sufficient interest and numbers are met by Club members, be run on an ad hoc basis. It is hoped that the Club’s WebCollect site will be your first point of contact as both the gatherer of both interest and an easy means of contact from the club either by E-mail or SMS.
