See Which Course Is Best For You
I have never been on a boat
The basic level is right for new sailors you can get your Pleasure Craft operators card too!
I am new to sailing
The basic level is right for new sailors.
I am a dinghy Sailor but not sailed keelboats
although many of the aspects of keelboat sailing are the same as a dinghy there are important differences we recommend a Basic course
I have some experience racing or cruising in a keelboat
It depends on your experience level it’s probably best to contact us for a course recommendation, most people find they learn something new even in a Basic course.
I have extensive keelboat racing experience
Although the sailing aspects of the course will come easy to you there are other aspect of cruising which may be new, it’s probably best to contact us for a course recommendation, most people find they learn something new even in a Basic course
I own my own keelboat or have extensive cruising experience
You are probably ready for Intermediate Cruising, If you don’t have Basic you will need to challenge that level which can be done in an Intermediate course there is a small up-charge for the additional Basic Certification. You should also consider taking a Coastal Navigation course in preparation for Intermediate. If you plan on Sailing in Europe you should consider taking an International Certificate of Competence options are to combine it with Intermediate or take a stand alone ICC challenge course
I have completed my Basic a year or two ago but have not sailed since
It’s probably best that you refresh your skills and re-take the Basic. A case of “If you don’t use it you lose it”.
I have completed my Basic and have some sailing experience since
Congratulations you are ready to take Intermediate If you don’t have it we recommend that you take a Coastal Navigation course in preparation for Intermediate.
I am an experienced Sailor and want to Charter In Europe
You will probably need an International Certificate of Competence to skipper a charter boat. We can issue ICC based on a weekend challenge of the standard or it can be combined with an Intermediate course. See our ICC page
