5KSC is now in partnership with Kipper Sailing (also called Skippers online) who provide online theory courses. These include RYA Day, Coastal, Yachtmaster and Ocean skipper qualification, the cost ranges from £295-£490. 5KSC members will generate a discount of £100 paid to the club which can then be spent by that individual on a practical course run by 5KSC. The £100 will revert to 5KSC general funds if the course is not completed within 3 years of finishing the theory course. The courses come highly recommended by club members. You can apply for courses via 5KSC Kipper Training Form .
