Successful candidates will become quaified to teach RYA Racing Courses in keelboats. If a candidate is also a dinghy and/or multihull Instructor then he/she will also be able to teach racing courses in those disciplines as well.
Although each candidate has the opportunity to deliver a pre-prepared short talk on a subject of their choice, the course focuses much more heavily on practical sessions. The practical sections of this course usually focus on a specific part of racing (i.e. windward mark rounding, upwind tactics, start line bias and so on). The aim is for the candidates to run lots of short sessions afloat. The course includes:
- Structure of the RYA racing courses and scheme
- Preparation & management of racing courses
- Instructional techniques
- Use of race training exercises
- Personal development
On successful completion, the candidates’ logbook will be signed by the Coach/Assessor.
