Yachtmaster Coastal
A preparation week to become an RYA Yachtmaster Coastal

RYA Yachtmaster Coastal Prep Course

A preparation week before taking the RYA Yachtmaster Coastal Examination

RYA Yachtmaster Coastal students need to have the knowledge to skipper a sailing yacht on coastal cruises but do not necessarily have the experience needed to undertake longer passages.

This preparation week is an intense week of coaching including plenty of night sailing, sailing and power handling exercises and navigation.  You are expected to have all the knowledge and skills of an experienced Coastal Skipper before joining the preparation week as time for teaching new skills is at a premium.

A week of refreshing and refining skills, to get you ready for your exam at the end of the preparation week.

We can organise an examiner for the final day of the week. Upon achieving your RYA Yachtmaster Coastal Certificate, you will be recognised as an experienced & knowledgeable sailor.
