Our RYA Competent Crew course will give you experience living on board and let you 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 our Competent Crew 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 a yacht. You should also have visited some interesting places and had an enjoyable holiday. The Competent Crew course is the most important of all courses, get this right and this will provide the best foundation for developing confidence and enjoyment on the water.

Our aim for you is that upon completion of this course you are indeed a Competent Crew able to join any sailing yacht as a valuable crew member.

Our RYA Competent Crew Practical course will begin by spending the first day making you feel relaxed and ready to learn, your instructor will begin to explain sea terms and parts of a boat to you, taking one step at a time.

We cover the RYA Competent Crew course syllabus, but we also introduce you to more advanced skills in order to enhance your confidence. In addition, you will receive basic instruction on how to use the VHF radio, the procedures to follow should someone fall over the side, what to do if your skipper is incapacitated, a brief introduction on traditional and electronic navigation, basic engine maintenance and mechanical checks and much more.

We do our best to create a relaxed learning environment where learning becomes fun. We all make mistakes and sailing is one of those activities where no matter how experienced you are, you never ever stop learning.

I moved to Italy with my family 3 years ago and we run a RYA Training Centre in Genoa. I have been sailing since the age of 10, initially on dinghies and then moving on to yachts. My husband is the course instructor and he is a fully qualified RYA yachtmaster instructor and examiner with many years of experience.

    I applied for the competent crew course as a real beginner.
    It's been an amazing experience; Fabrizio, the instructor, is a very well organized person, able to let you learn whatever is in your capabilities.
    I'm glad I got this experience, I'll be more confident with sailboats from now on, and I know that with this RYA course my approach will be more professional
