RYA Start Yachting
This RYA Start Yachting course is a two day and two night on board short introduction to sail cruising for novices. If you are thinking of joining friends aboard their charter yacht, or have always wondered what it is like to sail on one of the yachts you see on the water from the shore, then this course is the stepping stone to becoming an effective crew member or even over time a Yachtmaster. Why not come and try sailing with Brixham Sea school.
