Dinghies at EYC


Training at EYC


Erith Yacht Club is an established Royal Yachting Association (RYA) recognised training centre. We are proud to have a full-time coach to develop a wide range of courses for members and non-members. Our aim is to help develop participants’ skills and confidence on and off the water, and get them involved in club sailing events.


Using the RYA scheme for youth and adults, our courses provide clear pathways from beginner to advanced levels in a safe environment. These sailing and powerboat courses use the Club’s fleet of dinghies, keel boats, and powerboats (RIBs).  All instructors hold an RYA Instructor qualification.


As well as dinghy courses, we offer a range of shore-based courses for cruiser sailors. This includes RYA Day Skipper Theory and Coastal and Yachtmaster Theory. Water-based courses are also available.


All this supports our wider sailing and racing commitments within London and the South East of England.


Our training brochure for the year can be found at the link below, and further details regarding the various courses can be accessed via the menu above left.
