Which RYA Sailing Course is right for me?

As an RYA Training Centre, we offer a wide range of training courses to suit everyone from the complete beginner to the experienced sailor. Here, in Gibraltar, we offer both short courses like the RYA Introduction to Yachting, through to preparation weeks for the RYA Yachtmaster Offshore Exam.

There are minimum entry requirements set by the RYA for students studying more advanced courses. For more information click here.

Most non-sailors start with either a short course like the two day Introduction to Yachting or the longer RYA Competent Crew Course, taken over 5 days. Both courses are entirely practical in nature and you will live on board one of our training yachts throughout the course. For the more experienced sailor, an RYA Day Skipper Theory Course is the first step to a Day Skipper qualification.

For those keen to progress further, more study and experience will prepare you for the next step, RYA Yachtmaster Coastal or RYA Yachtmaster Offshore. These exams are externally invigilated and can form the cornerstone of a career in yachting for those wishing to take their sailing further.
