Langkawi Sailing School

COMPETENT CREW COURSES are an ideal introduction to cruising. They teach personal safety, seamanship and helmsmanship to the level required to be a useful member of crew of a cruising yacht. The course will cover basic boat handling skills, helmsmanship, sail handling, mooring and ropecraft.
This option is a great route to take towards gaining your RYA qualifications. If you dont have the time or the money to complete the Yachtmaster training in one go. By taking 3 seperate modules in this way it allows time for mile building and gaining experience.You can join at any level as long as you have the pre course experienced required Our 20 day course modules are designed for you to gain both the practical and theory Certificates, while allowing time to practice what you have learnt and get more experience.There is much to see and do here.The modules allow time to experience the delights of the area, while ensuring the course content is thoroughly covered.The courses are conducted in a relaxed and unrushed manner. Time is put aside for sightseeing and other activities.

Each 20 day module consists of both practical and theory and is a combination of courses from the RYA Cruising Syllabus. The Courses consist of 12 days onboard one of our training yachts and 8 days ashore*.On successful completion of one of our RYA Fastrack courses you will leave here with a new confidence and understanding, at your training level. And of course your newly achieved RYA Certificates. You will also have had a wonderful, unforgettable holiday!!
