Marina Kremik, Primosten (HR)

Cruising Instructor (sail)

The Cruising Instructor course will prepare you to teach the RYA Day Skipper and Competent Crew courses. This is the first step as a sailing instructor in the RYA Cruising scheme, and will allow you to start your career at any RYA training center.


The Cruising Instructor course runs over five days, of which four will be of preparation with an RYA Instructor, and on the fifth day, a ‘Moderator’ will come onboard and and evaluate your suitability to be an RYA cruising instructor, hopefully confirming what the instructor has seen in the previous four days.

You will be reviewing and practicing different techniques of teaching, like the praise burger or the Edicts method, learn how to give feedback in a clear and constructive manner, and observe your peers by playing ‘teacher and student’ in a number of situations and maneuvers.

Please note that your sailing and maneuvring skills, as well as your spoken and written English need to be at an appropriate level, in line with what is required from an instructor!
