RYA Competent Crew

Experience living on board and really get to know the boat. Virtually all the course is hands on. You are the crew – without you the sails won’t go up and the boat won’t be steered.

By the end of the course you should be able to steer, handle sails, keep a lookout, row a dinghy and assist in all the day to day duties on board. You should also have visited some interesting places and had an enjoyable holiday.

By doing this course, you will be a certified & confident sailor with Asia Pacific’s largest & long established sailing school. With our array of well equipped boats and our instructors who come with an abundance of knowledge – Look no further than EastSail
