The RYA Competent Crew course is the perfect learn to sail course aimed for complete beginners who want to aim for more than the two day RYA Start Yachting course. It’s best for those who have spent very limited time or no time on sailing vessels, but want to be able to go sailing as a competent member of the crew onboard.

The course is planned to give you as much fun and enjoyment as possible, as you adventure and learn the fundamentals of cruising yachts. While you cruise you will learn about safety at sea and will be given lots of opportunities to master the seamanship skills of steering, changing sails, reefing and tying the essential knots as well as whats is like to live on a yacht for an extended period.
