The RYA (Royal Yachting Association) has as a world-wide reputation. Their teaching materials and methods are excellent and RYA is recognised worldwide as the standard of excellence in sailing education. The RYA’s training is based on the practical nature of the teaching and on a student-instructor ratio of no more than 5 to 1, thus ensuring that the instructor can dedicate the necessary time to the student.  RYA courses are based on comprehensive syllabi and course materials, and lead to certificates that are widely recognised and respected around the world. They inspect every recognised training centre (RTC) and their boats every year to ensure they meet RYA standards.
