People often ask what it is that makes RYA Training so popular. With more than 180,000 people

taking RYA courses every year there must be something that attracts them to it. RYA courses are all about learning useful and interesting skills in a safe and fun environment. The emphasis is on learning through going on the water, rather than focusing purely on the theory. Our instructors are regularly updated, we inspect the training centres’ boats annually and all our courses are regularly reviewed

to ensure they remain current and relevant. There is a course at the right level for

everyone. Whether you are thinking about venturing onto the water for the first time or are focused on developing your offshore skills as a skipper, there is something to suit you. If you are uncertain what level to start at there are some useful course descriptions both in this brochure and on our website, showing you what is covered in each course. Alternatively any of our more than 400 recognised sail and motor cruising centres would be pleased to answer your questions.

On successful completion of any of

our courses you will be awarded a course completion certificate. Some of these, such as Day Skipper and Coastal Skipper, are accepted almost universally around the world for the purpose of chartering boats. So go ahead, take the plunge and jump into the wonderful world of RYA Training!

Safe boating, Richard Falk
