RYA Coastal Skipper

The Coastal Skipper course is the perfect bridge between the Day Skipper course and the RYA Yachtmaster Exam Prep course. It is designed to provide an experienced Day Skipper with the knowledge and confidence required to undertake longer and more complex passages by day and night.

An important aspect of this course is learning to take command and make decisions which result in relaxed, well-planned passages and a happy crew. By the end of the course you should be ready to build on your experience and maybe work towards a Certificate of Competence.

Before taking this course it is essential to have attended the equivalent shore based course, to ensure that time is not wasted teaching theory on board.

  • 8th – 12th July – 1 space
  • 30th September  –   4th October 2019
