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 life jackets, 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.
