Start Yachting Course

5KSC are running another RYA Start Yachting on the weekend of 20-21 November. It will be held at Liverpool Marina. It covers safety aspects and an introduction to sailing a yacht. The two days count towards the RYA Competent Crew qualification. Please book though the booking site.

Sailing Theory Courses

During the winter months why not use your time and up your skills with an online theory course? We have a link to a school which provides an excellent online service. If you do a course with them we will offer a reduction on the 5KSC practical course. For more details see training or https://5ksc.org.uk/main/Training
