RYA vs US Sailing certifications and conversion
I'm looking to start courses for more certifications. RYA courses are readily available in New Zealand and I depart to live there for six months later this week. Are the certificates easily transferrable to U.S. certifications. I would like to work towards becoming a sailing instructor. Are the RYA ratings a waste of $?

Check with ASA and US Sailing for their prerequisites before starting down any path.
