RYA Start Yachting Course
The RYA Start Yachting Course provides an introduction to sailing and cruising for people who have never sailed before. All RYA courses are run by the British Offshore Sailing School (BOSS) in association with Helm Yacht Charters. The course is held during weekends from the Hamble Marina base in Southampton.
By the end of the course, you will be able to steer a yacht, handle a sail, learn various maritime knots and understand how to remain safe at sea.
The course is perfect for people of all ages and even an entire family can take the course together.
