RYA Coastal Skipper Course Overview

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 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 important that you have attended the Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster™ Offshore shorebased course, or have the associated level of knowledge, beforehand as there is insufficient time to teach you theory during the week. It is a satisfying but intensive week, with candidates often working towards a Certificate of Competence.
