To make it easier for you to find the courses and dates you require, we have now added our Current Course Availability page detailing current courses that are on our schedule and available dates when any course can be scheduled for you. Availability is always subject to bookings received.
If the dates you are interested in are not shown please email us for availability of a yacht and instructor and we will set the course up for you.
This is a 2 day non-residential “taster” course that simply takes you sailing along Antigua’s beautiful west coastline.
On completion of this course you will have a basic knowledge and be capable of sailing a yacht in light winds as crew and helm with a skipper on board. It is assumed that every student has already mastered the practical skills and absorbed the background knowledge required for Level 1. Both courses can be combined which will then count towards 2 days of the Competent Crew course.
No previous experience is required and there is a recommended minimum age of 12.
If you have previous experience of sailing with family, friends or a holiday outing, and have already decided you have been “bitten”, you may skip Levels 1 & 2 and go straight into RYA Competent Crew and begin your sail training in earnest.
