St. Helier Yacht Club offers a full range of shore-based RYA training courses, as well as ICC, throughout the year. We are unable to offer practical courses at present. 

We will keep the website and notice boards updated with courses as we organise them, but please feel free to contact the the Club if there are specific courses you would like to do. We will keep records of demand for specific courses and will endeavour to put courses on that match your needs. If you have a group that wants to do a specific course, we may be able to arrange for one of our trainers to run a course on a date that is convenient for you. Just ask!
