RYA Sea School

SunSea Yachting is a Royal Yachting Association, Recognised Training Centre. We offer classroom theory, online and practical courses as part of the RYA Sail Cruising and Power Boat Schemes. We are also an International Certificate of Competence (ICC) test centre. Practical courses can be on a private or public basis depending on whether or not you wish to share the boat and instructor. We can also provide training on your own boat providing it meets some basic safety requirements.

Public Practical Courses

For individuals or groups sharing the instructor and yacht. Maximum of 5 students.

Prices from £995 per person.

Our Public Courses option is a great way to achieve your training objectives whilst having fun and meeting new and interesting like-minded people.

You will receive expert tuition from an RYA Yachtmaster Instructor with over 10 years teaching experience. We often mix courses so you may be completing your Competent Crew course whilst another student is becoming a Day Skipper.

If you are a group of 3 people or more we can book a course date to suit and then will promote that date to fill the remaining places

If you are an individual or couple, please check our 2024 schedule here and contact us with your preferred date. Additional course dates will be added as they become available.

Private Practical Courses

Private tuition & exclusive use of the yacht for you and your party (max5)

From £3,495 per group

Our Private Course option suits people with specific dates in mind and who prefer a more personalised experience.

You will receive the same expert tuition as on a public course, we can offer the range of RYA courses to suit the experience of the members of your group and focus on individual objectives or skills.

Courses can be 5 or 7 days in duration and we are happy to help your group choose an itinerary to suit you.

To book a Private Course please contact us with your preferred dates and group details and we’ll sort out the rest.
