Hykeham Sailing Club
Learn to sail with Hykeham sailing club’s RYA approved courses
RYA Level 1 course
The RYA level 1 dinghy sailing introduces absolute beginners to the sport of dinghy sailing. The course is for beginners who have done little or no dinghy sailing before. It is the first part of the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) training scheme.
RYA Level 2 course
The RYA level 2 course builds on the knowledge and skills acquired from the RYA level 1 course, taking participants to a level where they are competent to sail in light to moderate winds without supervision. On satisfactory completion of the RYA level 2 course, individuals are deemed to have sufficient competence to make use of the club ‘s own boats, weather conditions permitting.
RYA Youth Sail Training & Family Courses
These courses are delivered by the Lincoln and District Sailing Association who are an affiliate of the Hykeham Sailing Club and a RYA Recognised Training Establishment.
For Club members who have completed their RYA level 2, we offer Improver Sailing Sessions on most Saturday’s at 1.30pm.
Improver Sessions are informal sailing sessions giving members the opportunity to practice the skills learnt on their RYA Level 2 Course.
These sessions are led by experienced Club sailors who volunteer their time and skills to guide and encourage the less experienced sailor. Safety boat cover is available and Club Boats may be used free of charge.
These sessions are also open to any club member who wants to sail their boat knowing that safety cover is available.
Booking is not essential, but helps us know who is coming and enables you to indicate which Club Boat you would like to borrow.
Race Coaching is primarily aimed at Youth Sailors (members and affiliated members) who are able to sail a course.
Our experienced Race Coach will help you to improve your race skills.
You may use your own boat, or borrow a HSC or LDSA Topper.
Booking for these sessions is essential as the Race Coach will not attend if there are no bookings.
