RYA Start Yachting and RYA Competent Crew course combined over 5 consecutive days » RYA Start Yachting and RYA Competent Crew course combined over 5 consecutive days
This course is for beginners and those who would like to become active crew members rather than just passengers.
Experience living on board and really get to know the boat. Virtually all the course is hands-on. You are the crew - without you, the sails won't go up and the boat won't be steered.
By the end of the course, you should be able to steer, handle sails, keep a lookout, row a dinghy, and assist in all the day-to-day duties on board. You should also have visited some interesting places and had an enjoyable holiday.
On successful completion of the combined course, you will obtain your full competent crew certificate, which will enable you to sign up for the 5 day Dayskipper Theory course.

Duration: 5 days (live on board at least 3 night)
