RYA Competent Crew Yacht Sailing Courses in Barcelona and Costa Brava with Barcelona Watersports

This 5 day RYA Competent Crew is a hands on practical sailing course for beginner yacht sailors and those who would like to become an active member of the crew rather than just a passenger. In this course you will stay aboard the yacht so that you really live and understand the complete yachting experience. RYA Competent Crew will teach you the basic principles of sailing, as well as personal safety. The course includes the following:

  • Helmsmanship
  • Sail Handling
  • Rope Work
  • Essential Safety Procedures
  • Rules of the Road
  • Metrology
  • Man Over Board
  • Manners and Customs

The Course: On this course you will either head south from Barcelona along the Costa Dorada to stunning ports such as Sitges or Tarragona, or north to the rugged Costa Brava with its secluded beaches, coves and hidden villages towards Tossa de Mar and Cadaqués. During this course you will be mooring up each night in different ports to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere, superb apres sailing and delicious cuisine that Spain has to offer. If you want a fantastic sailing experience with warm weather, perfect sailing conditions, wonderful coastline, ports, harbours and Catalan quaint coastal villages then this is the course for you!

Course Objective: The skills acquired in this course will enable you to become a valuable crew member. You will be able to steer, handle sails, keep a lookout and be able to assist in all the daily routines.

Prerequisite: None

Venue: Marina Port Vell, central Barcelona

What Next: Once you have completed your RYA Competent Crew you can go onto to complete your RYA Dayskipper. A Dayskipper can charter a yacht and enjoy sailing independently. Chartering a yacht is a perfect opportunity to get away from the crowded beaches, discover isolated coves only accessible by the sea and build on your skippering experience. Barcelona Watersports charter out their yachts in Port Vell.
