Practical courses are held on board one of the school’s training yachts and include all meals on board for the duration of the course. Courses depart from Manly Boat Harbour and if they are longer than 1 day the yacht will spend the evening at anchor or in another harbour.
Weekend Bay sailing courses begin on Saturday morning and finish Sunday afternoon. Mooloolaba trips are held over 3 days (weather permitting). Five day trips start Monday morning and return Friday night. At the successful completion of each RYA course students are awarded a course completion certificate.
At Yachtmaster Offshore level students can undertake a practical examination to receive an RYA Certificate of Competence. These certificates can be used towards commercial qualifications and are recognised internationally. Students can enter the scheme at any level appropriate to their experience.
