Please put the date in your diary, and if you think you can help in any way, on the water, on the shore, or in the Club please come to the briefing at 6pm on Friday the 17 May. The briefing will not last more than an hour, so you can enjoy your Friday evening, and the galley should be open serving food.
Please apply early. using the online Training application form and select 16+ Adult courses and Laser Foiling.
Please note the course is not restricted to 16+ we can take youth and adults.
We plan to run beginner and intermediate youth courses on both a Monday and Wednesday evening, and a more advanced course on a Thursday evening. However places cannot be guaranteed and your are recommended to apply early. When you apply you will have the option to select either a Monday or a Wednesday for intermediate and beginner course however when we review the applications we will assess the ability of applicants to try and fit them into the correct group with matched abilities. So please be as flexible as possible with the two days as it may be that we offer you a different day to that which you have applied for. It is very difficult to ensure the quality of training if we have mixed ability groups.
The closing date for the Youth Evening Training is Sunday the 3 March.
Adult Evening courses
Will run on a Tuesday evening again from 5.30 / 6.00pm. The first course starts on the 7 May, with a second course starting in June / July.
Please apply early if you are interested as this will help us to plan better, although we will accept applications up to two weeks before the course start dates.
More information and how to apply
The full set of planned dates and more details about the course content and other useful information will be posted on the website over the next few days

All the crew @MYC
Mumbles Yacht Club runs an extensive racing programme the whole year round.
Racing is split into various series - Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer and Evening, with catamaran and dinghy classes.
Throughout the summer, racing is weekly (or as weekly as possible depending on whether the sea decides to show up or not). The Spring series is scheduled as often as possible when tide and light allow. During the other series', it drops down to fortnightly.
Racing is open to all classes, all competitors, all levels. If you're unsure of what to do, come along and ask someone, we're a helpful bunch and our aim is to get as many boats on the water as possible.
There are perpetual trophies for the overall winners of each series, prizes for the youth champions, and a presentation evening where everything is given out the first Saturday in October.
The Gower Challenge is a weekend dedicated to long distance racing, starting with a long distance race to Oxwich and back, and then concluding with long distance races 'around the cans'.
It's a head to head between the cat and dinghy fleets!
There also a Mumbles Yacht Club Open Regatta, and a CYRC, which is a Youth regatta, and part of a regional series.
This year we are proud to be hosting the 2019 Byte National Championship
Push the boat out and Bart's Bash also make an appearance at the start and end of the season.
Mumbles Yacht Club has also hosted a number of National, European and world championships in the club, the more recent ones including:
- 2008: F16 World Championship
- 2014: Dart 18 European Championship
- 2015: 4000 National Championship
- 2015: Cherub National Championship

- 2016: F18 Nationals & Eurocup 2016
- 2019: Byte National Championship

Sunday racing starts at either 10:30, 14:30 or 16:30 depending on the tide. Evening racing starts at 18:45.
Unless the series is in progress, all dates are provisional and subject to change.
