RYA Seamanship Skills

Focusing on the advanced elements of the RYA National Sailing Scheme, EYC offers advanced sail training in Seamanship Skills, Spinnaker Sailing and Start Racing. Each advanced course is designed as a logical progression for sailors to become confident small boat helms, and will open up the tidal waters of the Thames and other coastal locations.


It is recommended that sailors are confident with their Level 2 sailing skills before taking up an advanced course to ensure they benefit from the coaching provided. If you would like a refresher course, the Level 3 - Improvers course can be a means of gaining further coaching before taking up an advanced course.


If you are not too sure which course is suitable for you, please do not hesitate to contact one of the friendly instructors in the training team, or use the 'Contact Ed' facility.
