The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) is an international organisation dedicated to the promotion of safe & enjoyable boating. It is widely accepted by common consent that the RYA is a world leader in the promotion of safe watersports activities. 1st ScotSail Training is member of this organisation and is an RYA Approved Training Centre and, like the RYA, we are dedicated to the provision of excellent service to all those with an interest in sailing. Competent Crew and Day Skipper Courses on the Firth of Clyde, Scotland are run every weekend and weekend throughout the season.

We offer a wide variety of courses, all RYA approved and certified meaning those who qualify to their chosen level, receive an internationally recognised qualification. In many cases, formal qualifications like RYA Certifcates are required in order to charter or use a sailing vessel either in Scotland, the United Kingdom or abroad. You may also need to have certain qualifications to use legally some equipment, marine VHF Radio for example.
