New courses available to develop skills and training

Sail Measure

A Sail Measure course, which is approved by World Sailing, will take place at Strangford Lough Yacht Club. The course will be led by RYA’s Technical Manager, Adam Parry. 

It is designed to train sail measurers and is the perfect stepping stone for aspiring measurers who want to learn the necessary skills for measuring in a standard class rules format. 

Spaces are limited so please book ahead. To register for the Sail Measure course, click here.


An online safeguarding awareness course, led by Sport Northern Ireland, will be held on Monday 27 February. 

The course is important for all adults involved in children’s sport but it is particularly recommended for coaches, leaders, administrators and officials.
