As an RYA Certified Training Center we offer the whole RYA spectre of sail training at sea. All RYA classes are in the English language with their respective internationally recognized certificates.
Yacht sailing is extremely diverse and there are opportunities for everyone to participate. Take the family cruising in warm climates, explore far flung remote places with friends or try your hand at racing. One day you may be sailing offshore surrounded by dolphins and the next you could be anchored in a secluded bay, eating freshly caught fish for lunch. There is no sport that offers a greater variety of emotions, experiences, destinations and social opportunity.
Cruising yachts have accommodation and cooking facilities, offering a degree of comfort whilst spending time afloat. How far you venture is up to you. Whether you are a first-timer wanting to be a useful crew member, or a more experienced skipper wanting to expand your skills, there is an RYA course for you. As certified training centre, Zeezeilschool Scheveningen offers the following courses:
: A full weekend introduction to sailing for complete beginners.
Competent Crew : This course is for beginners and those who would like to become active crew members rather than just passengers.
Day Skipper : A course for aspiring skippers with some yachting experience and basic navigation and sailing skills.
Coastal Skipper : Advanced skippering techniques for yachtsmen and women with considerable knowledge of sailing and navigation, wanting to undertake coastal passages by day and night.
Yachtmaster : An RYA Yachtmaster Certificate of Competence is often the ultimate aim of aspiring skippers. It is a well known, highly respected qualification worldwide, proving your experience and competence as a skipper.
Shorebased Courses : There is a lot of theory to be dealt with at sea. Basics of inshore navigation and safety including tidal awareness, charts, almanacs and the use of electronic navigation aids such as GPS are some of the examples. We offer the basic and advanced RYA theory courses that are essential to anyone going to sea. The online courses can be done in your own time and speed, comfortably from home, or anywhere behind your computer.
Off course you can also join one of the many non RYA courses at the Zeezeilschool, like one of our Coastal Navigation Clinics or the International Sailing Courses where you can bring into practise all you have learned and enjoy a beautiful trip to the English coast or one of the many other places we visit. During all our courses we maintain the same high standard, that can be expected from an RYA Certified Training Centre.
Below you find an overview of all our RYA Courses.
More information about the different courses can be found on the respective course pages on our website. Please do not hesitate to call us if you have any questions about sailing with us.
