RYA Competent Crew

Start date: Multiple dates
Location: Victoria, Australia
Supplier: Yacht Training Victoria (/yacht-training-victoria)
Price: $1350

The RYA Competent Crew course teaches the basics of yachting in more depth than the RYA Start Yachting course. Students live aboard the yacht for the duration of the course. This is both a training trip and a holiday in one!

The course is a 5-day trip , all expenses and meals onboard are included in the cost of the course. As cruising is supposed to be a relaxing activity, there is time to take it easy and enjoy the journey with at least one evening meal onshore (not included in price, but it won’t be expensive). Visiting different harbours and anchorages, students will enjoy the delights of spending the night on board and sailing under the stars.

At the completion of the course you will be awarded the RYA Competent Crew course completion certificate.
