International Crew Training

This is a certificate of excellence for those candidates who wish to train to become an active crew member on a sailing yacht. it includes rope work, basic passage planning, vessel handling skills and seamanship on deck to name but a few. The course can be taken on our training yacht alongside the Flotilla and bareboat skipper courses and for any age over 14.

Certificate Limitations

  • Crew on a vessel up to a maximum length of 78 ft /24 metres
  • in coastal waters up to 20 miles offshore
  • in daylight hours and in fair conditions with moderate wind and sea conditions

This course provides the level of competence that someone needs either when acting as watchkeeping crew on a yacht and as a skipper of a small yacht in protected waters where help is immediately available in calm conditions. This certificate does not qualify you to charter yachts as a skipper. For this, you will need our International Flotilla Skipper course as a minimum qualification.
