Join Maybe Sailing on board Tall Ship Maybe for a RYA Competent Crew course. This course is for beginners and those who would like to become active crew members rather than just passengers. Experience living on board and really get to know the boat. Virtually all the course is hands on. You are the crew – without you the sails won’t go up and the boat won’t be steered.
You will gain knowledge of sea terms and parts of the boat, her rigging and sails, sail handling, ropework, fire precautions and fighting, personal safety equipment, man overboard procedures, emergency equipment, meteorology, seasickness helmsmanship, general duties, manners and customs, rules of the road and dinghies.
By the end of the course you should be able to steer, handle sails, keep a lookout, row a dinghy and assist in all the day to day duties on board.
