The International Crew Course give a basic understanding of the knowledge that is required to be an active crew member onboard a yacht. The level of instruction in the International Crew Course is more advanced than that of the Introduction to Yachting course, paying greater attention to technique and the mechanics of boat speed.
This certificate allows you to:
- crew on a vessel up to a maximum length of 78 ft /24 metres
- in coastal waters up to 20 miles offshore
- in daylight hours and in fair conditions with moderate wind and sea conditions
It is the level of competence that someone needs either when acting as watchkeeping crew on a yacht and as a skipper of a small yacht in protected waters where help is immediately available in calm conditions.
The theory component of the course is run on an evening from 5.30 pm - 9 pm, and over the practical component of the course is run on the following weekend from 9am - 4pm (subject to change) both days.
Courses are run subject to availability.
