Isle of Skye Yachts are delighted to be able to offer RYA Practical Courses and Tuition.
In addition to chartering yachts, Isle of Skye Yachts offer three RYA accredited courses.
This course is for beginners wishing to build up their sailing skills. It is aimed at people who would like to become active crew rather than just passengers. One of the pleasures of this course is that total strangers start working together to make their yacht sail efficiently and look smart. By the end of the course, each participant should be able to steer, handle sails, keep a lookout, row a dinghy and assist in the daily routines on bo`ard.
This course is for aspiring Skippers who have some yachting experience and basic navigation and sailing ability. Before coming on this course you should be able to sail around a triangular course and control boat speed. The instructor will be on hand to give advice and encouragement, and, to ensure that your destination is reached safely.
Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Preparation
This is an advanced Skippering Course for yachtsmen and women who have considerable knowledge of sailing and navigation and are usually aspiring towards a Certificate of Competence. Aspiring Coastal Skippers should be able to undertake more difficult passages by day and night and handle the yacht in more demanding conditions. By the end of the week you should have the knowledge, if not the experience, to become a Yachtmaster.
