Training at EDYC in 2022 updated Jan 22
Training will be an essential and fundamental element of our 2022 season. In ideal circumstances our club could undertake a training needs analysis and database the results. Thus we can manage appropriate courses, however we operate on a simpler level.
We seek an indication of your training wishes now by your completion and return of a simple word form (or just email). Completion of this form will indicate what training you (or family and friends) are considering. Not all will know of the courses which can be provided the following list will help. Each course can be further detailed by links and searches mainly to the RYA web site. The RYA web is the dominant information source for RYA endorsed qualifications. Your form (or email) will be acknowledged on receipt by email@example.com and later details will be sent of courses you are interested in as they develop (likely early spring). Please communicate with us as the club needs this information.
At this time of year (Jan) it is the shore based courses which are under most consideration, with only some water activity early spring.
