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.
