About The Event
This is a fantastic 7 day course where you can get on board a yacht and learn as much as you can over the week. You will work towards the RYA Competent Crew Certificate.
This course is aimed to encourage you out on the water and have fun doing it! During the course, you spend 6 nights on board the boat, really seeing how sailing life suits you and enjoying exploring the Caribbean coast in St Lucia. Get involved! - From cooking to tying the boat up in the marina, everything becomes a fun team effort.
The RYA Competent Crew Syllabus covers all the basics of being on a boat. We coach you so you are able to steer the boat under sail and motor power, understand all terms used on board, mooring techniques and even help you to row a dinghy!!
You will meet great likeminded people that become your friends (and family for 7 days) as you have some unforgettable experiences that will leave you wanting more! It's also an opportunity to enjoy sailing with the girls! - so that you can go out sailing with and feel confident working as part of a team.
Each night you will end up in a new port to explore, where you will sit down with your skipper and fellow crew mates to go through the events and learnings of the day. By the end of the 7 days you should have sufficient knowledge to be able to be a 'competent' part of the crew on any sailing yacht.
Your RYA instructor will be there to help you through anything you are unsure of and will coach you all the way, including handy tips to remembering things. She is there to help you, so make sure you can get as much information that time allows! She loves to teach and loves watching new people learn the sport that she loves so much.
It's great fun and we hope the 7 days that will make you leave wanting to come back for more, with new found friends and a new found love, what is there to not like?
