The Competent Crew is a course for complete beginners and will teach you how to become a useful crew member on a sail cruising yacht. You will learn the basics of yacht sailing, and after completion you will be able to assist in the day to day running of the yacht and participate as an active crew member, rather than just a passenger.
On completion of this course, you will become a confident member of the yacht crew. You will learn the practical aspects of yacht sailing with lots of hands-on sailing - how to helm, yacht manoeuvres and trimming sails - so it’s a lot of fun!
You will learn how to helm the yacht by compass, trim and handle the sails, keep a lookout, use a dinghy and assist in Man Overboard and other safety areas with plenty of time to practice all these skills. All the daily routines of yacht sailing will be covered.
