Experience & Mile Building

Join one of the RYA courses as crew and learn without having the pressure of being under assessment.  These opportunities are a low-cost way to build experience and put some miles in your log book in preparation for taking your own future steps on the RYA training ladder.

Although you won’t be formally instructed as you would have on a full course you will learn a great deal from just watching others being taught and having the time to sit back and get a better understanding of what is going on.
