RYA Policies

As an RYA Training Centre we take child protection and bullying very seriously. Please find links below to the RYA Policies we adhere to at the RGYC Sailing Academy:

Bullying (on and off the race course)

Safer Coaching

Child Protection and Safety

Health & Safety

Safety is a key part of a successful programme. Here are some rules for our dock:

  • Lifejackets/Personal Floatation Devices (PFD) MUST be worn. No class at the Academy is run without wearing a lifejacket/PFD. We do have some extra PFDs on hand for children. All adult course have self-inflating lifejackets provided.
  • Shoes: The RBYC has a working dock. Shoes must be worn, they should be non-slip, with a back and can get wet. We do not encourage flip-flops for younger students.
  • Sun Protection: We are a SunSmart certified camp. Please bring sunscreen, hat, and wear sun protective clothing. We limit exposure for the students in the summer months.
  • First Aid: All our RYA instructors have current First Aid certificates approved by the RYA. We ask our students to submit a medical waiver once a year, which is kept confidential.
  • Water bottle: Stay hydrated! Please bring a ‘labelled’ water bottle to class. We have water containers on property to refill.
