RYA Courses, Training and Skills Forums

Newhaven Yacht Club is an official RYA training centre for Shore based courses only. RYA qualifications are encouraged by the Club, and RYA courses run by the Club are subsidised for members.

Courses are arranged by our Course Principal, Maurice Elford who needs your input to know what courses you want to do, and we need enough attending to make courses viable, so please use our   Email Message Page to add your name to his course lists. Once enough requests have been received, any courses required will be arranged.

In addition to formal training courses, the Club provides regular evening “Skills Forums” during the winter season. Designed as a refresher for aspects of your navigation, weather knowledge, boat handling skills etc, Forums are usually held at the White Lion Hotel, Seaford and details will be published on-line in the club’s events calendar on this website.
