Assuming you are up to Day Skipper level of Competence and have all the required mileage under sail and in tidal waters then you can join our 5 Week RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore Upgrade Course.
The RYA Yachtmaster Offshore Exam thoroughly tests the Skipper’s ability and can therefore appear daunting to potential candidates, but well-prepared Skippers with the Proper Experience and Training need not worry. With practice and preparation, you should be able to relax sufficiently to let your skills shine through any Exam nerves.
The content of the RYA Day Skipper Theory & Practical Weeks are Vital as these are the foundation of your training and are needed to ensure that your Boat handling (including picking up a mooring and man over board) and Theoretical knowledge (including Chartwork, COLREGS and Meteorology) are up to standard in order to continue to an RYA Yachtmaster Coastal/Offshore Standard.
We need to be sure that you are ready to start at RYA Coastal/Offshore Theory and that you know how to work out CTS and Depth and Dr/EP. If you feel you’re not ready to start at RYA Coastal Level, we recommend that you start with RYA Day Skipper Theory.
