The two day RYA Start Yachting is an introductory course to sailing for complete beginners. It is a great course to establish whether or not you wish to take up the pastime without investing too much time and money.

By the end of the 2 day course you will have experienced steering a yacht, sail handling, ropework and be aware of safety on board.

We also run a separate three day Competent Crew course to complement the Start Yachting course.  This will enable you to get your full Competent Crew certificate as well.

Helicopter RescueThis is the course which we hope will never be needed but has the potential to save your life.

It involves some classroom work as well as a session in a swimming pool getting familiarised with liferafts, lifejackets and other emergency equipment and procedures.

It is compulsory for all instructors and other commercial skippers.

Until you’ve tried it the experience of being in the water with a lifejacket and clothing cannot be properly understood, nor can the level of difficulty involved in getting from the water into a liferaft.

We often talk about flares and sometimes glibly refer to the instructions. You’ll be quite surprised to experience letting them off for real and please, don’t try this at home!
