Yachtmaster Coastal

This is a preparation week before taking the RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Coastal Examination.

The RYA Yachmaster Costal needs to have the knowledge to skipper a sailing yacht on Coastal cruises but does not necessarily have the experience needed to undertake longer passages.

This is a thorough 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 a prep 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.

We can organise an examiner for the end of the week.

How you can take the course.

Please contact us regarding your individual requirements for this prep week.

What your course includes

  • An experienced Yachtmaster Instructor for your coaching.
  • Well found modern yacht, linen, navigational equipment and resources.
  • Note: the examination fee is paid directly to the RYA at the time of the examination.  For a current list of exam fees please see the RYA website.
