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 going for 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 base in Tuscany, Italy, we run the course almost every other weekend during the season and on request. Please note that is not a residential course, and it runs from 9am to 5pm.
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!
