RYA Yachtmaster (Coastal) Course.
Skippering a yacht on coastal and offshore passages demands strong navigation, seamanship and leadership skills. The RYA Yachtmaster Coastal Skipper Practical course prepares those with previous skippering experience to undertake longer voyages.
During the RYA Yachtmaster Coastal Skipper course your instructor will guide you through navigation, both offshore and in limited visibility, weather forecasting and passage planning, watch keeping and preparation for sea.
You will put this all into practice as each student plans and executes passages taking complete command of the yacht. Coastal skippers must be good boat handlers and you will receive plenty of practice mooring the yacht and have at least 4 hours night sailing.
Weather permitting the yacht will undertake a longer coastal passage.
At the successful completion of the RYA Yachtmaster Coastal Skipper course you will be awarded the RYA Yachtmaster Coastal Skipper Course Completion Certificate and will be able to skipper on coastal passages safely and confidently by day or night.
