Whether you are new to yachting or have a bit more experience and are looking for a certification, the RYA Competent Crew course could well be the training you need. This is a course for beginners and those who would like to become active crew members rather than just passengers.
By the end of the course you should be able to steer, handle sails, keep a lookout, row a dinghy and assist in all the day to day duties on board. Your experience will also include living and sleeping onboard and understanding everything that needs to be done to run a boat.
There is no formal external assessment or exam for the RYA Competent Crew course. Certification is attributed by your instructor upon covering the requirements.
While our 5 day sailing course will equip students with all the necessary safety skills and build confidence in crewing techniques, it is also largely about having fun, visiting some interesting places and having a bit of a holiday.
