RYA Start Yachting Course

A short introduction to sailing for complete beginners.start yachting

For an introduction to sailing why not participate in our own   ‘START YACHTING’ course? The majority of our students learn more than they imagined possible and for those with no or little sailing experience but who like the idea of joining a flotilla for their holiday this is an ideal opportunity.

The Start Yachting’ course is for a minimum of two days. You will receive a Course Completion certificate, which is widely recognized.

RYA Competent Crew Course

The COMPETENT CREW course will teach you the basics of sailing, help the skipper navigate and how to live safely day-to-day on a yacht.

No prior experience is necessary yet at the end of the course you will be the sort of crew that skippers want! A successful completion will give you a worthwhile certificate. Course length is six days.

RYA Day Skipper Course

A DAY SKIPPER course is for more experienced sailing crew, in which students learn how to take charge of a yacht and its crew. It is not for the beginner because you will be expected to be able to sail and navigate to DAY SKIPPER standard, having taken a shore-based course before attending.

Most people undertake a forty-hour shore based course at their local college or yacht club during the winter months but we can run them in Turkey with the instructor’s fee being shared between the students.

On successful completion of the practical course you will be certified competent to skipper a yacht by day in familiar waters.

RYA Yacht Master Coastal Course

YACHTMASTER (COASTAL) is for the experienced skipper and can lead to a RYA/MCA examination and commercial endorsement if you wish, which means that you can be a professional skipper.

You will learn advanced skippering and sailing skills as well as customs and other international regulations.

We normally try to sail overnight to a distant harbour to practice these advanced skills. Although most people pass the course it is very intense. Successful students are certified to skipper a yacht on coastal passages by day and night.
