CBYA Sail Training

How’s good are your sailing skills?

If you have no sailing skills, or your skills are limited, then the place to start is to learn the basics, as you would on the Competent Crew course. The CBYA have teamed up with the owner of a Bavaria 40 yacht in Club Nautico de Javea, who is going to run though all the competencies you would learn on a Competent Crew course. These are:

    1. Knowledge of sea terms and parts of a boat, her rigging and sails
    2. Sail Handling
    3. Ropework
    4. Fire precautions and fighting
    5. Personal safety equipment 
    6. Man overboard 
    7. Emergency equipment 
    8. Manners and customs 
    9. Rules of the road 
    10. Dinghies 
    11. Meteorology 
    12. About Seasickness 
    13. Helmsmanship and sailing 
    14. General duties 
  1. With skills at the level of Competent Crew, and together with the RYA Day Skipper Theory*, you would be all prepared to take the  RYA Day Skipper Practical course, enabling you to skipper a boat with confidence, or charter a boat for your own use.

The course runs on Tuesdays throughout the winter. Courses run from 11am until 3pm from Club Nautico, Marina de Javea and are open to all members of The CBYA. Note you must have adequate personal liability insurance in order to sail

Please watch out for the newsletter inviting you to take part on one of  these exciting sailing days or review the events calendar.

* The CBYA are also running a Day Skipper Theory online course. See newsletters and posts about Day Skipper Theory courses for more information
