RYA Practical Sailing Courses on Classic Boats, Theory Courses online.

RYA Online Theory Courses – SPECIAL OFFERS 

 

Classic Sailing has been a recognised RYA Training Centre for 15 years. We currently offer practical sailing courses through a RYA Training Centre in Plymouth, Devon with classic boats in their teaching fleet. The boating courses we offer are RYA Competent Crew, RYA Day Skipper Practical, RYA Watch Leader (for bigger yachts), and exam preparation with intensive boat handling and navigation practice for RYA Yachtmaster Coastal or RYA Yachtmaster Offshore exams.

These are taught to Royal Yacht Association syllabus and standards by experienced RYA Cruising Instructors and Yachtmaster instructors. If you successfully complete a RYA course you will gain a certificate that is recognised all over the world. Sailing Courses that are UK based rather than the Mediterranean or Caribbean will give you a solid grounding in tidal heights and currents. With those skills the whole world is your oyster.
