RYA Theory Courses Cornwall


Cornish Cruising's shore based Royal Yachting Association RYA Theory Courses from Falmouth. If the traditional ways of learning the theory of navigation and seamanship (night schools with large class numbers, correspondence courses, self teaching out of books, etc) isn't for you, this course is just what you are looking for.

Our friendly, down to earth learning centre is geared to teaching small numbers. All tuition will be by our Offshore Instructors, who can get things across in a plain and simple way. Whatever course you choose, you'd be helped by seasoned sailors who, for years, have been doing what you wanted to learn. A 5-day shore based session will enable you to get real benefit from a Practical Course.

They are intensive courses, so it's helpful to do a bit of reading before you get here and we will be pleased to advise you on this.

These courses are substitutes for spending 26 weeks at night school, so there is a lot to get through in 5 days.
