RYA Courses

School, group and teenage sailing weeks
Beginners practical courses are delivered onboard our Sail Training vessels Moosk, Pegasus and Tectona. Most weeks offer the opportunity to work towards an RYA Certificate, and could count for your DofE Gold Residential – always check with your DofE Leader first:

RYA Courses for everyone
During the sailing season we also run a number of RYA Competent Crew, Day Skipper Practical, and Yachtmaster Preparation & Exam courses onboard Moosk which are open to all ages.  Course dates can be found on our availability page.
