RYA Training Centre
FOWEY GALLANTS RYA TRAINING CENTRE
Our principal, chief instructor, senior instructors and all the team look forward to seeing all your faces, new and old, back at the club and out on the water.
On the water training
Fowey Gallants Sailing Club operate a training facility approved by the RYA offering a number of courses for all ages from 7 years upwards. Please refer to the relevant section for youth and adult sailing training and powerboat courses. In 2022 you will be able to register and pay for courses through the website. Prices are shown in the relevant sections within the training area of the website.
If you are new to sailing and would like a short taster experience in our Venture keelboat please email us with your enquiry as these are booked to suit demand and weather.
We are able to offer Powerboat PB2 courses on alternate weekends. If you are really keen to do this on weekdays please email us and we will try and sort that out. We need two people to make a powerboat course viable unless an individual is happy to pay the cost to take the course 1:1. We are running a poll where people can register their interest in doing a course but are solo and we can then try and put people together. We can do PB1 if required and also the RYA Safety Boat course. Again please contact us for more informations.
Shore Based Courses - current availablility
Currently Fowey Gallants Sailing Club is recognised by the RYA to provide first aid and Marine SRC training. These courses will be run at various times through the year. Watch out for emails from the club or the calendar.
Shorebased Courses - future plans
FGSC intend in future to run a number of other RYA shore based courses from the clubs facilities as part of its RYA training centre.
PLEASE NOTE THESE COURSES ARE NOT YET AVAILABLE AND THE CENTRE IS NOT APPROVED AT THIS TIME TO PROVIDE THEM.
Future one-day courses may include:-
Diesel engine maintenance.
Evening/weekend courses may include:-
Any other course for which there is sufficient demand - email us with your requests and that way we can measure demand.
Our fleet of sailing dinghies is shown here. For those members who have completed RYA level two or RYA stage 2 certificates and can demonstrate their competence at launching and recovering dinghies from the dinghy park we are able to offer dinghies for hire - either for club racing or to allow you to practise and improve your sailing skills. Costs for this will be available on the fleet page. Please note priority will be given to training course use at all times.
The prices for our training courses are discounted for club members. If you are a non-member, but take a powerboat or sailing course and subsequently join the club within a month of the completion date of your course we will refund the difference of the course costs. In order to take advantage of this please contact us in advance of completing membership application. This does not apply to half day sessions or discover sailing sessions.
