This is your next step after completing “Start yachting” but you can also do the course as an absolute beginner.
We propose to run the next Competent Crew course, subject to demand, over two weekends 26th to 28th April 2019 and 4th to 6th May 2019. We can only take a maximum of 5 persons for this course, so book early to avoid disappointment!
Duration: 5 Days
This Irish Sailing course introduces you to the enjoyment of sailing on a modern cruising yacht. The course is ideal for persons who have sailed before, but want to know more about how it all works. From helming to sail trim, hoisting a spinnaker to navigation and mooring. The aim is to bring you to the level whereby you are confident and competent, and an asset to any boat.
The competent crew course is very hands on, with a lot of time spent just sailing, and understanding how it works. You will spend all five days onboard the yacht and sail by iconic west coast places such as the Blasket Sound, the Shannon estuary, Dingle Harbour or maybe even as far as the Skelligs. All weather permitting, of course! By the end of the course, you will be an asset to any yacht.
