If you’ve dreamt of taking the helm for a power yachting holiday, 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.

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 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 personalised instruction from your RYA instructor.
