RYA Competent Crew, RYA Day Skipper Practical and RYA Coastal Skipper Practical

5th April - 19 July

RYA Competent Crew

This course is for beginners and those who would like to become active crew members rather than just passengers.

Experience living on board and really get to know the boat. Virtually all the course is hands on. You are the crew - without you, the sails won't go up and the boat won't be steered.

By the end of the course, you should be able to steer, handle sails, keep a lookout, row a dinghy and assist in all day to day duties on board. You will also have visited some interesting places and had an enjoyable holiday.

RYA Day Skipper Practical

A course for aspiring skippers with some yachting experience and basic navigation and sailing skills.

Learn to skipper a short passage with the instructor on hand to give advice and encouragement and ensure your safety. Gain experience being in charge, taking credit when it all goes well and being responsible when it doesn't.

Before this course, if you are not sure that your sailing is up to speed, a good way to learn is on an RYA Level 2 course. This will teach you to sail around a course and control the boat's speed.

If it's help with navigation that you need, you should take our Day Skipper shorebased course.

This course has some prerequisites;

5 days, 100 miles, 4 night hours on board a sailing yacht.

And theory to a Day Skipper Theory Level

RYA Coastal Skipper Practical

Advanced skippering techniques for yachtsmen and women with considerable knowledge of sailing and navigation, wanting to undertake coastal passages by day and night.

Like the Day Skipper course, this course consists of skippered passages in a variety of situations. Each trainee will skipper more challenging passages and learn more about passage planning, pilotage by day and night, boat handling, safety and emergency situations.

It is a satisfying but intensive week, with candidates often working towards a Certificate of Competence.
