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.

Latest News (Jan 2022)
Due to the flight bans and Covid restrictions we are currently not doing any practical RYA course training. This situation will likely persist until the Covid restrictions are eased significantly.
We will send an email to all those who have registered with us when things become clearer. Cameron Ferguson, Chief Instructor.

ASIA Pacific Yachting run the full set of yacht training sailing courses both theory and practical.
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.
We have two training yachts in the school to suit all types of sailing.
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.
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.
