RYA Coastal Skipper / Yachtmaster Theory

Course Content

This is an advanced course which assumes prior completion of the RYA Day Skipper course or the equivalent knowledge and is intended to be both. It develops more advanced navigation, including chart work, position fixing, tides, buoyage, and offshore passage planning as well as the essential subjects of safety, International Regulations for Preventing Collision at Sea and meteorology.

With the increasing use of modern electronic aids to navigation, the use of G.P.S. is also included. This course is equally suited to both sail and powerboat users and is essential preparation for the RYA Coastal Skipper Practical Course or the Yachtmaster Examination.
