FAQ's: About The RYA Multihull Level 2 Training Course

How much will the Multihull Basic Skills course cost including exam fees?

Depending on where you take it, what time of year and whether you do it as a group, the Multihull Level 2 course can cost up to $380 / 340 EUROS / £250 per person.

What will you get out of this course?

You will develop the basic skills in multihull sailing that you got from Level 1. You will be able to sail in slightly more challenging conditions and under less supervision.

Many courses combine the level 1 and 2 courses into one five session package so you go from being a complete novice to being fairly competent and safe in one course.

What are your limits on passing RYA Multihull Level 2?

You should be able to sail a catamaran or trimaran in comfortable conditions, under a low level of supervision.

Don’t plan on racing a foiling GC 32 but do consider yourself competent to take a Hobie or Dart around the buoys on a sunny day!

Is it theory, practical or a combination of both?

There are shorebased theory elements such as learning to rig your boat and tension the lines correctly, as well as capsize and recovery skills, but the Level 2 course is predominantly practical so that you learn 'on the water' sailing skills.

Where can you take it?

You can take the course anywhere in the world that has an RYA accredited sailing establishment.

Consider the course as part of a beach holiday as multihulls are very easy to take off the beach and blast just outside the surf line. Many Caribbean islands offer such courses as a result…

Can you do the course in another country?

Yes, training is provided worldwide. Use our search function to find a course near you.

What level of experience do you need before you begin the course?

You should be able to show that you have the skills taught in the Multihull Level 1 course, though you don’t have to have the certificate. Thus, if you can launch and beach the boat, as well as sail it at all points of sail without coaching, you should qualify to do Level 2.

What's the duration of the course?

This course takes either two days or four evenings to complete.

What does the Multihull Level 2 involve?

After revisiting your basic skills in RYA Level 1 you will develop these skills further.

One of the major safety techniques taught is capsize recovery, something that will inevitably happen as you push your skills ever further on dinghies or multihulls.

How do I progress after completing it?

You can either to the RYA Multihull Level 3, which is preparation for the intermediate level sailing courses, or go straight to the intermediate level courses such as the racing or cruising multihull courses. It is up to you!

Look at the RYA intermediate course outlines for more information, or at the Level 3 course here.

Does this course give you international accreditation?

Not directly as with the more advanced RYA cruising courses, but you may well be able to hire a Hobie or Dart for a few hours while on holiday abroad.
