Which course is right for me?

Unsure which course is right for you? We will attempt to explain the broad, and sometimes confusing, range of sailing courses available.If you are new to sailing have a look at what other practical and theory courses we offer, or if you're interested in brushing up your sailing skills why not have a look at what refresher courses we offer.

RYA Courses

RYA Theory Courses

RYA theory courses are designed to help you unravel the mysteries of navigation, pilotage, passage planning and meteorology. They are great as stand alone courses but also complement our various practical training courses.
Even the most experienced sailors need to refresh their theory skills occasionally. Equinox run on-line and classroom courses at our offices in Snowhill, near Smithfield in the City of London, or we can organise bespoke courses at your offices.

RYA Online Theory Courses

RYA online theory courses are designed to help you unravel the mysteries of navigation, pilotage, passage planning and meteorology. They are the same as their traditional classroom based courses but allow you the flexibility to learn at your own pace in your own time.

RYA Practical Courses

If you are new to sailing or looking to complete your YachtMaster we run the RYA practical courses for all abilities. We understand that the courses are stepping stones to enable you to achieve your other sailing objectives. Let us help you plan the right courses at the right time.

RYA One Day Courses

RYA One Day Courses complement our theory and practical courses.  They are both fun and educational and help you develop your skills to enjoy your time on the water.

RYA Courses run by Equinox Sailing

All RYA Courses are run using highly trained instructors who work full time in the sailing industry so you can get the best possible experience and instruction.
