These are the first rungs on the RYA Yachtmaster (Sail) Scheme ladder. The purpose is to provide the opportunity for ladies to decide if sailing is for them.

RYA courses are run by Miramar Sailing School

RYA Sailing Skills 1 – A two day non-residential course that introduces the joys of sailing in the calm waters of Antigua’s beautiful west coastline.

By the end of the course you will have a basic understanding of yacht handling under sail. This will include practical techniques and background knowledge.

We recommend that all participants follow this short introduction with the Basic Skills – Level 2 course.

You may have previous experience of sailing with family, friends or a holiday outing. You may have already decided you have been “bitten”.

In this case you may skip Levels 1 and 2, and go straight into RYA Competent Crew and begin your sail training in earnest.

Previous experience is not required. There is a recommended minimum age of 12.

RYA Basic Skills 2 – Also a two day non-residential course that builds on the knowledge and ability gained in Level 1.

On completion of this course you will be capable of sailing a yacht in light winds as crew and helm with a skipper on board.

We assume every student has absorbed the skills and background knowledge learnt in Level 1.

Completion of both courses will count towards 2 days of the Competent Crew course.

Previous experience is not required. There is a recommended minimum age of 12.

RYA Start Yachting – A two day residential course that builds on Sailing Skills with experience of staying on board a yacht overnight.

Previous experience is not required. There is no minimum age.

After a further 3 days of training, this qualification will contribute to the RYA Competent Crew practical course.

RYA Competent Crew – A five day live-a-board course on which you will extend your sail training.

You will learn how to live and work on board a yacht, in the company of others, in a small space.

By the end of the five days you will have become a useful member of any crew.

This is perfect for complete beginners who have decided they wish to pursue sailing. No previous experience required and there is no age rule.

The RYA Competent Crew course is ideal for those wishing to progress to skippering. You cannot skipper a yacht unless you know what to expect of your crew, and manage them.

Single ladies may book a course once a minimum group of two has booked. A 5% fully refundable deposit will reserve your place.
