RYA Start Yachting Weekend

RYA Start Yachting Weekend

Start Yachting

A short introduction to sailing for complete beginners.

By the end of the course you will have experienced steering a yacht, sail handling, ropework and be aware of safety on board and hopefully had a lot of fun with your fellow students. Holders of the Start Yachting certificate can go on to complete the Competent Crew course in a reduced time of three days or two weekends.




This course runs on a twice monthly weekend basis, so please call for dates. We can also run an event mid week if we have more than 3 students. The course cost is £235 and includes lunch on board, fuel and mooring fees and use of our wet weather gear and lifejacket.
