The Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster RYA theory course provides advanced training for experienced skippers, building on knowledge gained from the Dayskipper theory course. This course is aimed at those who are looking to execute complex sailing passages offshore by day or night and are able to plan and execute into unfamiliar waters. The theory course should compliment the practical course when skippering passages over 60 miles.
The course syllabus includes the following:
Prerequisites: You will need to have a good grasp of all subjects covered by the Dayskipper shore based course, and also of collision regulations.
Exams: There are three exams on metrology, chart work and collision regulations
Venue: Brighton Marina
This course is also offered at our centre in Barcelona
The own boat tuition for the diesel course has been excellent in all respects and exceeded my expectations.
