Ever thought about sailing a yacht?
If you’ve ever thought about getting out on the water in a yacht, then think about contacting 5 Kingdoms Sailing Club (5KSC). The club is the North West yachting section of the Civil Service Sailing Association (CSSA). We have taster days when you can go out on the River Mersey for a few hours in the club yacht, a 37ft Beneteau.
For those with some experience, there are races and skills-honing sessions during the winter. Our main programme starts in May with a sail to Conwy, then we go up to the Clyde on the west coast of Scotland.
The club is now a recognised RYA Training Centre, and we will be holding courses for Competent Crew, Day Skipper and Yachtmaster on the Clyde at the start of the season in June, and probably again in August. For the skipper courses, it is best to complete the theory courses before the practical, although some people with current experience could probably omit the theory.
We have linked up with a company that provides an online theory course, which many people find convenient. Alternatively, many local education centres offer classroom courses.
