The RYA Coastal / Yachtmaster Theory course is an advanced navigation course for more experienced skippers building on knowledge gained during the Day Skipper theory and practical courses. The course equips you to navigate safely on coastal and offshore passages. It allows some time for revision of the basics and then moves on to advanced navigation techniques.
The RYA Coastal / Yachtmaster Theory course will take your theory knowledge to the standard required for the Coastal Skipper, Yachtmaster Coastal and Yachtmaster Offshore practical exams, concentrating on advanced navigation and meteorology skills.
As with the Day Skipper shorebased course, the RYA’s specially designed chart plotter software will be used during the course to give you a realistic taste of modern electronic navigation.
The course is taught over 40 hours with three exam papers. It can be covered as an intensive 5 day course, over 2 – 3 weekends, or by on-line learning.
This course is non residential however we can provide accommodation on board one of our yachts for a small charge subject to availability.
Held on our barge at Gosport Marina. Contact us if you would like us to run a Coastal Skipper / Yachtmaster Theory course in your club or office.
