RYA Seamanship Skills

Fine tune your boat handling maoeuvres

This RYA Seamanship Skills course builds on the RYA Better Sailing Level 3 course and includes fine tuning those five essentials and boat handling manoeuvres. It expects the sailor upon completion to sail in a seamanlike manner and to be capable of making seamanship decisions.

We focus the sailor’s attention on sailing with a partner as crew and helm in a crew boat; as they learn to competently handle crew boats with main sail and jib; gain the theoretical knowledge to enable the student to make seamanlike decisions; cover a greater depth in already familiar areas such as rigging, launching and recovery; and learn high level skills such as sailing tight circles and sailing rudderless.
