RYA Competent Crew

RYA Competent Crew
RYA Competent Crew - West Cork - Ireland

The absolute beginner will experience the delights of sailing aboard an Ocean cruising yacht and the course is an ideal stepping stone for dinghy sailors who want to move up to yachting. The course will also give more experienced sailors the chance to improve their skills.

From our base here on West Cork’s unspoilt Sheep’s Head peninsula, you’ll tackle the varied sailing experiences posed by Dunmanus, Roaring Water and Bantry bays in a safe and reassuring environment. Our five days of fun and challenging training will equip you with the confidence and skills you need to be an asset and competent member of any crew.

During the RYA Competent Crew course you will spend all 5 days living on board and really get to "live" in the environment of a cruising yacht. Virtually all the course is hands on. You are the crew - without you the sails won't go up and the boat won't be steered. Safety is paramount in all RYA courses and you will learn how to operate flares, lifejackets, safety harnesses, liferafts, how to assist the recovery of a man overboard and participate in at least four hours of night time sailing during the course.

By the end of the course you should be able to steer, handle sails, keep a lookout, row a dinghy and assist in all the day to day duties on board. You should also have visited some interesting places in West Cork and had an enjoyable holiday besides gaining your RYA Competent Crew Certificate.

The course will finish about 4 pm on the final day, after boat cleaning and individual debriefings.
