Our RYA Start Yachting course allows an absolute beginner to have an introduction to sailing, focusing on enjoying the experience while learning to helm, to trim the sails, to handle lines, and to be comfortable on board – participating as actively as you wish, including a swim!
The 2-day Start Yachting course is a practical introduction to sailing for everyone. The course is ideal for people who want to experience time on the water and determine if they would like to take a course such as RYA Competent Crew.
At our Caribbean base in Antigua, we run the course almost every Friday & Saturday during the season and on request. Please note that normally it is not a residential course, as it runs from 9am to 5pm. But you do have the option of booking onto an overnight course, just contact us.
Once you have successfully completed this course, you can go directly to the RYA Competent Crew course for a reduced time of three days or two weekends, or take the 5 day RYA Competent Crew course at a discount, ask us for details!
