RYA Coastal Skipper and Day Skipper Courses.
We are running practical courses in conjunction with renowned RYA recognised training operator Fairview Sailing, which means we can now offer members competitively priced practical courses in the spring to enable you to obtain your Competent Crew, Day Skipper or Coastal Skipper qualification.
