RYA Online Courses

Sail training is moving into the 21st Century
You can do theory courses online…but still be supported by an instructor.

Online courses allow you to decide when you want to study- for some it might be over a number of weekday evenings for others it might be a free weekend.  Online courses allow students flexibility to study at a time and from a location of their choosing.

We are on hand by phone, email or Skype to help with any problem you may be having with the course. We receive regular updates on how you are progressing through the course and we will contact you on a regular basis to check in with how you feel you are getting on.
