It is also the ideal way to go should you wish to obtain a more advanced ticket, i.e. Day Skipper and Coastal Skipper, Yachtmaster etc. The course will enable you to build up some sea miles as well as some experience and above all equip you to be a useful and productive crewmember on any yacht, as well as teach you to be an effective Watch Master when the skipper is off watch. Having successfully completed a Competent Crew Course you will be an asset to any skipper who takes part in Club and Offshore Races.
