What about singles?
Singles are welcome on the RYA courses run by the RYA Recognised Training centres in Gibraltar. You will share a tuition yacht with other students (maximum 5 students per yacht).
Beginners will do RYA Competent Crew course which provides a general introduction to yacht cruising. You will be shown how to tie knots, steer the yacht, handle the sails, moor up, use the anchor, basic navigation and how to be a welcome and useful crew member.
To do your RYA Day Skipper practical course you will need at least 5 days crewing experience on sailing yachts and have either completed the Day Skipper shore-based course or have a good knowledge of basic navigation. This practical course gives you the chance to take charge on short passages under instruction with advice and help from the instructor. You'll also get plenty of chance to practice mooring up in many different situations. By the end of the course you should have enough experience to skipper a yacht in a safe and seamanlike manner on short daytime passages.
Bear in mind that you will need a competent crew if you want to charter a yacht in the future so why not bring a friend along to learn how to crew.
