RYA Competent Crew Sail Cruising Course From £399

RYA Competent Crew yacht sailing course can be the first time you take to the water, so perfect for the beginner or someone wishing to start some formal training working towards a series of RYA qualifications. This 5 day course is totally based on board one of our Bavaria cruising yachts based in Saxon Wharf in Southampton.

The course cost from just £399 and of course includes all your accommodation when covid restrictions allow. We also include all mooring fees, use of waterproof gear and so your only cost above the course fee will be your meals which can be taken ashore or cooked on board using the well equipped galley. The course is run for us by Solent Boat Training, an RYA recognised training centre.


Low Ratio Courses - All Our RYA Competent Crew Courses Run With Just 4 Students

Because all our competent crew courses run with just 4 students rather than the normal 5 students that other training centres operate we ensure the highest standards of training and keep the logistics on board more comfortable meaning all our students get their own bed on board.

A free RYA VHF radio course is included within the course via a voucher that can be used to join any of our monthly vhf radio courses running at our Southampton training centre base.  This course runs from our Southampton training centres and explores the best the Solent has to offer. You will be on board for a full 5 days/ 4 nights only returning to home base on the last day.

We hope you will love the time you have spent with us and will come back to take your Day Skipper theory & practical courses, you can then charter a yacht from our fleet for that summer holiday cruise ?
