Offshore practical training with LCSC

LCSC offers a variety of practical training courses for the offshore sailor. LCSC is a recognised RYA practical training centre and we run courses which offer LCSC members and non-members the opportunity to get their RYA practical certificates. Additionally the club runs other courses which do not form part of recognised RYA qualifications but are invaluable to the racing or cruising sailor wishing to progress in skill and experience.

All the RYA courses and many of the other courses are instructed by Peter Hopps, LCSC member and RYA instructor with many years experience of training.

Most courses are open to Non Members and for some courses the prices include a year's membership to the club or a waiver of the joining fee.

Non Club Members
