Marbella Sailing School has seen a rise in Families & Couples taking to the water onboard Catamarans.
To prepare not just the Skipper, but the whole crew for the next sailing adventure, we have designed an exclusive training experience for couples and families to learn how to sail as a team.
With expert tuition from an RYA Yachtmaster Instructor, you & your partner will feel confident to set sail with your family and friends with real sailing experience working side by side.
A short introduction to sailing for complete beginners.
By the end of the course, you will have experienced steering a yacht, sail handling, ropework and be aware of safety on board.
Holders of the Start Yachting certificate can go on to complete the Competent Crew course in a reduced time of three days or two weekends.
This course is for beginners and those who would like to become active crew members rather than just passengers. You will 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. The course becomes a rewarding holiday visiting different areas in the Costa del Sol.
Take control of the yacht “and” your crew.
During this five-day practical course, you will be given full responsibility at the helm for the crew and navigation with the instructor on hand at all times to provide advice and encouragement and to ensure your safety.
There’s no getting away from it – passing involves some work, some practice, and some dedication. But RYA Day Skipper is your ticket to freedom.
Advanced skippering techniques for yachtsmen and women with considerable knowledge of sailing and
navigation, wanting to undertake coastal passages by day and night.
Like the Day Skipper course, this course consists of skippered passages in a variety of situations. Each trainee will skipper more challenging passages and learn more about passage planning, pilotage by day and night, boat handling, safety and emergency situations.
