Coastal Skipper / Competent Crew

Course date
Date: 16/09/2023 - 23/09/2023

Marina Kremik, Primosten (HR)

Coastal Skipper / Competent Crew course:

The RYA Coastal Skipper / Competent Crew courses always take place at the same time. It is a great learning opportunity for participants of both courses: Competent Crew candidates are able to see and support more experienced sailors, whilst Coastal Skipper candidates learn how to manage less experienced crew

RYA Competent Crew

Choose the RYA Competent Crew course if you are a beginner with very limited or no sailing experience. You will learn all the basics of sailing and you will become a competent and confident member of the crew, able to assist a skipper in all the maneuvers.

RYA Day Skipper

Choose the RYA Coastal Skipper course instead if you have already sailing experience and would like to get your own skipper license. The RYA Coastal Skipper license is internationally recognised and accepted and will allow you to charter or skipper a yacht up to 24 meters.

IMPORTANT! To be able to charter a boat, you will also need an SRC marine radio license. We recommend you book our online course and then take the exam when you join us in Croatia. Here is the link to sign up SRC marine radio license
