Their theory courses provide the recreational sailor or aspiring professional with the essential elements of navigation and seamanship and are the core of the RYA Sail Cruising and Power syllabus.

We’ve teamed up with the leading online provider of RYA interactive courses to deliver the best possible training products for enabling students to study for and pass RYA examinations.
