RYA Practical Courses
1st Watersport is not recognised by RYA (at this time) for providing practical courses at Sea, even though Eric is RYA Yachtmaster Instructor.
The simple reason for this is because we do not own a yacht and 1st Watersport has not requested recognition for Practical courses.
We do practical courses through RYA Teaching establishments that are recognised for Practical courses. If you would like Eric to take you for either:
- Start Yachting
- Competent Crew
- Day Skipper (Tidal)
- Coastal Skipper
- Yachtmaster preparation
Then you can write to us and say which course you wish to do and when. For more about these courses go to this RYA link
. The RYA limit the number of ‘trainees’ on any one practical course to five, though you’ll get a better quality course with a trainee to instructor ratio of 4:1
For the Day Skipper and Coastal courses, you should have completed the relevant ‘Shorebased’ course first.
Do drop a line by E-mail if you would like us to fix a course for you.
