First Aid Training Courses Places Available - 2nd June 2018

RYA First Aid
 
Would you like to gain an RYA First Aid certificate? Or renew the one you have? LESC is hosting an RYA First Aid course, on 2nd June 2018. The course will run during the day and last around 6 hours. Pricing isn't finalised, but costs will be reasonable and competitive. If you are interested in participating or have any questions about it, email training@lochearnsc.com or speak to Alan McDonald
 

The RYA one-day course covers all the usual first aid subjects, but from a boating perspective. It is aimed at anyone who goes afloat, whether on inland waters, rivers, estuaries or on cross channel passages. In a medical emergency a little first aid knowledge and immediate action can save lives, especially in remote locations. This one-day course is designed to provide a working knowledge of first aid for people using small craft and to support skippers.

Loch Earn Sailing Club

As a registered Royal Yachting Association Training Centre, coaching for all abilities is available at the club. 

 

On scheduled weekends through the season we also provide morning sail coaching to members wishing to improve their abilities. As Loch Earn Sailing Club is run entirely by volunteers, unfortunately we cannot offer training or boat hire services to the public out with this.

 

There is also an intensive 5-day Training Week in July, open to both members and non-members. Application for places on our training week open from 1st May with application forms and full details appearing on the website around that time.

 

Meanwhile please enjoy these videos to get a flavour of learning to sail.
