LEYC Training Centre

Lough Erne Yacht Club (established 1818) became a Training Centre (previously known as a Recognised Teaching Establishment) in the 1980's. Sailing courses are provided on an annual basis - adult and junior courses, with power boat courses provided as required.

Skills learned on these courses can then be put into use by taking part in one of our many club sailing sessions, so why not join the club !!. Sailing is available 7 days a week, free of charge to club members, just turn up. See our timetable for details of which fleet sail on which day.

The training centre is staffed by qualified instructors who have gone on appropriate RYA Instructor Training Courses. This training and equipment is provided by the club.

It is useful that LEYC, a Volvo Champion Club, is also a Training Centre. It is not a condition of being a VCC, but it does mean that a regular supply of sail trained young people who are offered the opportunity to take part in the race training.
