Corfu Sea School Competent Crew Primer


We designed this fully narrated and animated online course as a primer for those taking their first practical course with us. It aims to unravel some of the apparent mysteries of boating such as: the language, how a boat sails and what it will be like living aboard a yacht.

There is also a section on rope work which explains who things should be done and provides videos of how to tie the essential knots. Also included is a section on ‘the rules of the road’ so that, when you take your turn at the  wheel, you will be a little more familiar with who gives way and when!
