COMPETENT CREW - EXTRA SKILLS
Practical Sailing Courses in the Mediterranean

DESIGNED FOR: Our EXTRA SKILLS course is designed for those who have completed their RYA Competent Crew course but would like to gain more experience and test out some essential navigation skills. You may not feel ready for Day Skipper but you would like to develop your skills further without too much pressure. You will learn more about sails and boat handling and get a taster of navigation theory.

During the course we explore beautiful unspoilt coves each lunchtime. Evening stops may enable us to go alongside, in the pretty old fishing harbour of Fornells, famous for its great seafood restaurants, in Addaya or the old capital, Ciutadella.

AIM: To develop your individual sailing skills and increase your knowledge and experience.

PROGRAM: Tailored to individual needs and experience.

FEEDBACK

A big thank you.

Four years ago Menorca Cruising helped to start our sailing adventure with a competent crew course. A year later, a day skipper course, designed specifically around the needs of a husband and wife team to short-handed sail in safety paved the way for our first Yacht.

Now having had our own Yacht berthed and looked after by John and Liz these past two years it is now time to say goodbye. We shall greatly miss the beautiful island of Menorca but perhaps more we will miss the professional, honest advice and a sense of humor that prevailed no matter what!!

Thank you again Liz and John for flattening the learning curve in such a nice way.

“I had a great week. Andy dealt with all our different levels very well making sure everyone got to try everything. I was never made to feel stupid and he answered all of my questions. I feel much more confident than at the beginning of the week”.

“I was very impressed with Andy as an instructor. He was extremely thorough and very flexible in his teaching based on the conditions. He allowed us to go beyond the Competent Crew syllabus and helped with further work that would be useful for Day Skipper. The room was better than expected. I would definitely recommend to friends to come here to do similar courses and will return if I charter a yacht”.

“With Andy we had an excellent balance of thorough professional instruction and enjoyment of the holiday”.

“Andy was a very knowledgeable instructor with the patience of a saint! Thank you for a great week”.

““I absolutely loved the course and made some really fantastic friends. I am completely smitten with sailing now and plan to do my Day Skipper Theory in September. Hopefully will return to Menorca Cruising to do the practical next summer, and perhaps talk some of my friends into doing the competent crew at the same time. Thanks for a brilliant holiday”!

“The course was arranged to cover training needs of a family with mixed sailing experience using our family’s own boat. All members achieved their needs and had a most enjoyable week. Many Thanks to John”.
