RYA Competent Crew Sailing Course In Southampton From £399

The RYA Competent Crew sailing course runs over 5 days with a choice of format. Either a 5 day block with 4 nights on board or over 2 weekends including a Friday to make up the 5 days. The nights on board the training yacht are included in the course fee. Costing from just £399 per person with a maximum of 4 students per course means lots of quality tuition from the RYA Yachtmaster instructor running your competent crew course. 

This course is run by Solent Boat Training who are the sole provider of RYA training for us, we simply would not use any other training centre as we know a lot of students come back to charter yachts from our Bavaria fleet.

No previous experience is required to join this course but you will need to be fit & mobile enough to operate one of our modern cruising yachts. This course is the perfect stepping stone to students wishing to skipper a yacht of their own or charter.

We usually use any of our trio of Bavaria 37 yachts as we take to the waters of the Solent heading for an overnight stops in Cowes & Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. Learning about safety, yacht systems, the theory of sailing and of course putting it all into practice during the 5 days.
