Useful website resources
This page lists a number of websites that have been found to contain useful information related to RYA courses plus general sailing and boating topics. Quite an eclectic mix of things I have found useful over the past few years. If any of the links no longer work I would appreciate an email with the name of the broken link as I find websites with broken link quite annoying! Equally I can take no credit or responsibility for the content on any of the links other than saying that I have used them at one time or another.
