Suggested itinerary

This one day course takes place on in our classroom.  It also includes a two hour pool session with liferafts in a near by pool.

As usual with Club Yachting the following is included:

  • Tuition from an experienced Instructor – we do not use instructors who have just qualified;
  • Course notes, paper and pens;
  • Tea, coffee, soft drinks and lunch;
  • Towel;
  • Life jacket and wet weather jacket if you do not use your own.

Must bring your own:

Medication – If you are taking any medication please advise your Instructor on commencement of the course.
Health care – Health care in the Canary Islands is good, but it is a good idea to collect the EHIC form from your local post office or online at www.ehic.org.uk.

Recommended clothes

It is recommended that you bring with you your own lifejacket if you have one as you will gain the experience of servicing it and seeing how it performs in an emergency.  It should be fitted with a crotch strap.

We also suggest that you bring with you swimwear, and a change of clothes.  A “shortie” is useful as the pool is not heated.
