If you’ve not been sailing before and want to learn the basics, this is the course for you. You’ll stay on the yacht for the duration of the course and learn all about living aboard with your fellow crew members. We teach you how to stay safe, how to prepare the boat for sea and how to become an effective member of the crew. By the end of the course you’ll be surprised how much you’ve learnt and will have achieved the minimum pre-course requirement for the Day Skipper course.
This course offers a great introduction to navigation and safety awareness for new or inexperienced skippers and crew, and those wanting to refresh their skills. In fact it’s for anyone interested in sailing, motor boating, sea angling or diving, and works well in complementing our on-the-water training, such as the Powerboat Level 2, Start Yachting and Helmsman courses. It’s a highly informative course with lots of opportunities for you to put your new found knowledge in to practice.
