RYA Sailing and Powerboat Courses
Option 1 RYA Competent Crew / Day Skipper Course
RYA Competent Crew/Day Skipper residential course aboard a yacht based in local waters, around the Channel Islands and the coast of Northern France. There is a minimum age of 12 years old for the Competent Crew course and 16 years old for Day Skipper. For accommodation each yacht has 3 cabins with double berths and berths in the saloon. As our instructors are male, we would require the teacher to be female if it is a mixed sex group or all girls. The price quoted on our website includes all tuition, accommodation and all food except one night ashore in a restaurant in either France or one of the Channel Islands, it also does not include travel to Jersey, nor does it include the cost of the teacher which would need to be split between your pupils. This trip is available for multiples of 4 pupils and 1 teacher. This course is available April - October.
Option 2 RYA Start Sailing Level 1 or 2 AND Powerboat Level 1
We are offering a course which runs Monday to Friday, 9-5pm staying in a hotel at night based in Jersey and allows pupils to achieve not one but two RYA qualifications; Start Sailing Level 1 aboard a yacht and Powerboat Level 1 aboard a RIB. Although if the whole group already has these qualifications we can tailor a course to suit your students. We expect pupils to have a certain level of maturity and responsibility which is why we have set our minimum age of year 5 or 9/10 year olds for this option. As prices differ greatly in accommodation according to the time of year we send out a separate quote for this course. The price includes all tuition, accommodation, travel from and to Jersey airport/harbour to your hotel, it does not include travel from your home town to Jersey, nor does it include the cost of the teacher which would need to be split between your pupils. This trip is available for multiples of 10 pupils and 1 teacher. The course is available year round.
