RYA Training in Hong Kong

Welcome to China’s first RYA Sail Cruising Recognized Training Centre.  We are based in Hong Kong and teach the full range of both theory and practical RYA yacht cruising courses.  To see our RYA registration details click here.

RYA qualifications are recognized all over the world as being the ‘gold standard’ for boating qualification, both for pleasure and commercial use.  The RYA have Recognized Training Centres (RTC) all over the world from Australia to the USA and it’s only through these RTCs they deliver their world class training and qualifications.  For more information on RYA training click here.

Latest News (Apr 2020)

Due to the COVID-19 virus we have had to put on hold delivering face-to-face courses, both practical and classroom based.  However, our online courses are still available so this is the ideal time to get that theory course completed so you are ready and qualified to take the associated practical course.

As soon as the Government lets us continue face-to-face training we will schedule new dates as send them out to all registered customers.  So if you want to know about our new courses as they are scheduled, please use the small form on this page to register to receive our emails.

Services

In addition to the RYA courses we also offer other added services such as experience building day’s, race training, ISAF safety reviews, etc.  Please contact us and give detials of the service you are considering.

Training Yachts

We have two training yachts in the school to suit all types of sailing.

Beneteu 37

Our newer Beneteu 37 is ideal for training RYA Competent Crew and RYA Day Skipper as its a good comfortable size but small enough for a new skipper to be able to handle her with ease.  She is well equipped and has excellent cover from the sun with a full bimini.  The Beneteu can comfortably sleep 7 and with its large, wide cockpit it’s very comfortable upstairs.

Bavaria 47

Our larger Bavaria 47 is more suited towards the RYA Coastal Skipper and RYA Yachtmaster courses but as she has air conditioning we use her more frequently in the hotter months.  Her features also including a 240V generator, electric primary winches, radar and HF radio.  So she is also ideally setup for blue water cruising.

‘Own Boat’ Training

If you wish to have your own private course on your own yacht this can be arranged.  The yacht used must meet certain standards we will be happy to advise you about the details on request.
