RYA Competent Crew Course
Are you interested in learning to sail this summer but don’t know where to start?
We will look at the RYA Competent Crew course in more detail to see if it is right for you.
Equinox Sailing runs RYA Competent Crew courses throughout the year and helps students gain confidence on the water as well as learning to sail.
The RYA Competent Crew course is a great way to learn to sail and experience living on a boat over 5 days.
Join the boat on Monday morning; meet your instructor and crew and after a safety briefing set off for a week on the water. Enjoy anchoring for lunch, or spending a night on a mooring buoy, and exploring the harbours and marines of the south coast before returning Friday afternoon.
Completion of the RYA Competent Crew course is clear evidence to other skippers and crew that you have basic sailing knowledge.
To progress your skills and knowledge, Equinox Sailing will be able to teach you more about sail trim; boat handling; flying spinnaker.
Once you have these under your belt skippers will want to have you aboard.
The RYA Competent Crew course is the foundation RYA practical sailing course. Once you have completed the course, why not continue the RYA qualifications and complete the RYA Day Skipper Theory course. Just want to get out on the water then why not join us for a weekend cruise.
Fancy something a little faster? Why not come out racing or on a race training course?
