I am brand new to this site and pretty new to sailing too so please bear with my ignorance!
Currently having a bit of free time as we're travelling and my hubbie can babysit our 13 month old for about 4 weeks I have been looking into a 4w Fastrack to Coastal Skipper
course with YachtPro Thailand
. It appeals to me because of its duration and flexibility. However I do want to spend my money
most wisely as you know these causes arn't cheap
I'm not sure of what the equivalent to this course would be with the RYA. A Coastal Skipper
course with the RYA seems to take at least 8 weeks so are they not equivalent?
At YachPro we do ASA
101, 103, 104, 105 and 106.
My long term goal is to have a boat and possibly charter
it out to people with a skipper or day groups on day trips. Am I better to get a course that might lead me more down a commercial route
with that in mind?
We are flying to Phuket in April but we have until the end of the year for me to get a sailing course in somewhere. I don't really have the freedom to do any courses longer than 4 weeks at this stage. In the future I can free up more time for further courses but not just yet.
Advice much appreciated, thanks
