RYA coastal skipper

Advanced Skippers course.  Learn to navigate at night and on longer Coastal passages

Advanced skippering techniques for yachtsmen and women with considerable knowledge of sailing and navigation, wanting to undertake coastal passages by day and night.

Like the RYA Day Skipper course, this course consists of skippered passages in a variety of situations. Each trainee will skipper more challenging passages and learn more about passage planning, pilotage by day and night, boat handling, safety and emergency situations.

It is a satisfying but intensive week and you will be expected to complete the RYA Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster™ Offshore online theory course beforehand as there is insufficient time to teach you theory during the week.   RYA Coastal Skippers should be able to undertake more difficult passages by day and night and handle the yacht in more demanding conditions. By the end of the course you should have the knowledge, if not the experience, to become a Yachtmaster™.
