RYA Competent Crew is for beginners and those who would like to become active crew members rather than just passengers.

Experience living onboard and really getting to know the boat. Virtually all the course is hands on. You are the crew – without you 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, and assist in all the day-to-day duties onboard.

This course is 5 days long but may also be completed over 3 weekends.
