Professional training is available from the Sailing manager at SYC Hollywell.
Volunteer training is on Thursdays, it is free for volunteers wanting to learn to be skippers and they are encouraged to do so.
Thursday is a great day to get into being a skipper on an Access dinghy. With lots of experienced sailors on hand to help you or just take a boat out on your own to work on your sailing skills..
The Salvo courses run over a period of weeks and are run when there are enough volunteers interested in learning to crew or skipper on the Salvos, if you are interested in the training course then please let one of the Salvo skippers know on a Tuesday and they will point you in the right direction.
The Salvos are raced inshore and offshore in Southport Yacht Club organized events and all volunteers are encouraged to crew or just come along for the ride.
Training is conducted at Southport Yacht Club, 1 Marina Ct, Hollywell, be sure to ring 0407 979 666 before coming to check if we are still on.
