RYA Competent Crew

5 days and 4 nights of practical sailing. An introduction to yachting, basic seamanship and helmsmanship skills.

With no previous sailing experience necessary, the RYA Competent Crew course is an ideal introduction to yachting. Over 5 days, you will learn how to steer a yacht, put up the sails and handle them, become familiar with nautical terms and learn how to live on a yacht, among other things.

In sailing, safety is of utmost importance, which is why you will also learn how to assist in the recovery of a sailor overboard, operate flares and use lifejackets, harnesses and life rafts. 

You will also sail over 100 nautical miles, enjoy at least 4 night hours’ sailing and visit many of the harbours and anchorages of the Cape area. The training you receive will ensure that you can function as a confident and competent member of any sailing crew.

Food is supplied for the course and there are no extra costs.
