Competent Crew Plus

Competent Crew Plus

Have you recently completed your RYA Competent Crew course, and would like to gain some more experience before attending your RYA Day Skipper practical? Perhaps you attended your RYA Competent Crew course a few years ago and need to refresh your skill? The Equinox Competent Crew Plus course could just be what you're looking for.

Equinox Competent Crew Plus Course Content

Spend a weekend refreshing your RYA Competent Crew skills with a qualified RYA Instructor. If you are looking to bridge the gap between RYA Competent Crew and RYA Day Skipper then learn some new skills:

  • Piloting in and out of harbours
  • Anchoring under engine
  • Picking up a mooring buoy under engine
  • Basic berthing and un-berthing.

Join the boat on Friday evening and meet your instructor and crew, start your course on Saturday morning, returning Sunday afternoon.

Useful literature

The RYA Competent Crew Skills is a useful book both during the course and as an aide memoire after your course, and can be purchased for £10 please let us know when you are booking.  We also have a section on sail handling that contains some worksheets you might find useful.


We now have RYA Competent Crew Course Material and RYA Day Skipper Course Material that you may find useful.

After your course

You will have refreshed your basic sailing skills and practised some new skills that will help you complete your RYA Day Skipper practical course.
