RYA Competent Crew Course
This course is intended for the newcomer to sailing, and is run over 5 days. Living on board the boat you will be taught the basics of seamanship, safety procedures, helmsmanship and all the techniques needed to be a useful crew member. You will learn the fundamentals of sailing: how to steer the boat, what the sails do, basic terminology and how to tie knots.
You will live on board during the course, we normally have a student to instructor ratio of 4:1 and we never ask you to share a cabin with someone you don't know (unles you want to!). We like to stop overnight at peaceful, tranquil anchorages and moorings around the local area; you can expect to visit the historic and beautiful harbours of Devon such as Dartmouth, Salcombe, Torquay, Brixham and the River Yealm
Cost £525 per person including accommodation onboard the yacht, food, mooring fees, fuel and loan of waterproof clothing. Just bring a sleeping bag or quilt and your clothes and you're set to go!
