Description

The Sunsail Yachtmaster Coastal prep and exam course is a follow-on course from the theory and practical elements of the Coastal Skipper course. Upon achieving your RYA Yachtmaster Coastal certificate you will be recognised as an advanced, experienced sailor.

The first five days of this seven-day course involve preparation for the final exam, with your instructor ensuring that you have the knowledge, understanding and techniques required to pass the assessment. You will focus on improving your weak areas, ensuring that your sailing manner is both safe and efficient. On day five an RYA examiner will step aboard and ask you to complete various tasks and manoeuvres to assess your ability. Pre- exam requirements are a GMDSS short range certificate or higher grade of marine radio certificate, an RYA accepted current First Aid and the required logged miles.
