RYA THEORY COURSES

RYA THEORY COURSES

Theory knowledge is important!

Learning to sail is like learning to drive. With driving you need to understand and handle a vehicle. This is no different to sailing, except that the vehicle is a boat. Your driving license was issued because you proved your knowledge of the Highway Code. If you hadn’t, you would not be considered a safe or competent. It is the same with sailing. Without proving your knowledge of the theory you are unlikely to be granted your skipper’s licence. You might be asking, why do we offer shore based courses when they are available on line? The truth of the matter is that we all lead such busy lifes these days that most of us can’t find the hours needed to study in order to pass the course!
This is why we have found you the most “holiday like’ situation in which to learn. Our classroom at Club De Vela allows you to have leisurely coffee breaks out on their terrace, swims at lunch and fabulous cocktails at the end of the day watching the sun
set over Port Andratx.
