RYA Competent Crew Course Canaries

RYA Competent Crew Course Lanzarote

The RYA Competent Crew course is the starting point for your sail training. The course is perfect for those who have completed our Introduction to Yachting course (Start Yachting), have done dinghy sailing, or are complete beginners.

We run our courses over 6 days giving a little more balance to teaching and relaxation from the normal 5 day course in the UK. You will join the boat in Marina Lanzarote, Arecife, on Sunday evening at 6 pm, meet the skipper and other crew members, settle in, safety briefing and then leave the marina on Monday morning for your skills practice, the course finishes at 3pm on Saturday where the boat will return to the marina. You are welcome to stay onboard until Sunday at noon.

In our Competent Crew course, you'll learn how to:

  • Trim the sails
  • Helm
  • Anchor
  • Prepare the boat for harbour
  • Row a dinghy
  • Tie knots, and loads more!

You will live on board one of our fully coded and licensed cruising yachts with a maximum of four other crew members and the skipper. Breakfast, lunch, snacks and two evening meals + wine will be provided and the cooking will be done between the skipper and the crew. Most evenings and mornings, there will be the opportunity to use facilities in the marinas where you have the opportunity to experience the local cuisine the Canaries have to offer.

Aside from learning the skills to be a competent crew member, you will visit the beautiful harbours of the Canary Islands, anchor in beautiful swimming and snorkeling spots, or even stay overnight on a mooring buoy.
