RYA Competent Crew / Day Skipper Practical

About this event

Please note both of these courses are ran in conjunction with GoWest Sailing

RYA Competent Crew Course

The RYA Competent Crew course is the starting point for your sail training. The course is perfect for those who have completed the our Introduction to Yachting course (Start Yachting), have done dinghy sailing, or are complete beginners.

The course will be completed in five days , and will give you the skills and the confidence to crew a yacht.

In our Competent Crew course, you'll learn how to:

Trim the sails

Helm

Anchor

Prepare the boat for harbour

Row a dinghy

Tie knots, and loads more!

Aside from learning the skills to be a competent crew member, you will visit beautiful harbours on the Clyde, anchorages in tranquil spots, or even stay overnight on a mooring buoy.

RYA Day Skipper Course

The RYA Day Skipper course is designed to teach you how to take charge of your yacht and your crew.

The skipper of any boat is not only responsible for the crew but for pilotage, navigation, sail selection, anchoring, reefing, maintenance and repairs, meteorology - amongst other things.

Our experienced RYA Yachtmaster Instructor will guide you through the training. You will complete an inshore or coastal passage where you will use the skills that you have practiced during the week. Night sailing is also undertaken to give you a taste of pilotage in the dark.

By the end of this course the successful RYA Day Skipper will be able to undertake short coastal passages by day, in both tidal and non-tidal waters. The course will give you the skills and confidence needed to skipper on your maiden voyage. In addition it will allow you to obtain your International Certificate of Competence so that you can charter in warmer climates!

Prior requirement for the RYA Day Skipper course is five days on board 100 NM, and basic knowledge of navigation and seamanship - this can be obtained from the RYA Day Skipper Theory course, or self study using specialised publications.

You will live on board one of our fully coded and licenced cruising yachts with a maximum of four other crew members and the skipper. Food will be provided and the cooking will be done between the skipper and the crew. There will also be the opportunity to use the facilities in the harbours most evenings and mornings.
