The Moorings - RYA Motor Cruising Course

If you’ve dreamed of taking the helm for a power yachting vacation, and earning RYA Helmsman or RYA Day Skipper cruising certifications, The Moorings’ new RYA Motor Cruising Course could be the answer. Many of the world’s most stunning charter destinations now require cruising certifications, and there’s no easier way to earn it than with hands-on instruction while aboard a comfortable Moorings power catamaran in the beautiful island of Corfu, Greece.

Choose to take your RYA certification course on a 7-day charter in Corfu. For five of the seven days, you’ll receive hands-on instruction from a RYA instructor. RYA courses are a fun and interesting way to combine education with a vacation of a lifetime. 

Presented in association with our RYA recognized training partners, Corfu Sea School, courses begin at The Moorings base in Corfu. You’ll depart for a 7-day yacht charter aboard a 39-ft Leopard Moorings 394PC, where you’ll be joined by your RYA instructor for 5 full days of instruction on the water followed by another full day to relax, practice your skills and take in the scenic cruising grounds.

With a limit of just 5 guests on board, you can expect quality, hands-on, and personalized instruction from your RYA instructor. There are no tests or exams required – certification is awarded based on instructor assessment.



Please Note: For the safety of our crews and guests, all Sail By The Cabin charters have been temporarily suspended through September 2021.
