Mile Building including Skippered Passages plus Skills & Development

The Skills Development and Mile Building trips place the emphasis on practical navigational experience by visiting as many ports as possible, going in and out of harbours along the coast.
This gives you the extra boat handling and skippering experience that you need, in some of the most challenging conditions in the world, rather than just 1 long passage.

You will also have the opportunity to gain all the mileage, sea time and night hours required for your RYA Yachtmaster Coastal or RYA Yachtmaster Offshore Exams.
Including days as the Skipper, 60 mile passages and 60 mile passages as the Skipper required for the RYA Yachtmaster Offshore Qualification.
All the mileage gained during these trips will be signed off in your Logbook.

The Skills Development trips will take you along some of the most unspoilt and beautiful coastlines in South Africa, including both the wonders of the cold waters of the west coast and the temperate waters of the well-known east coast.

Let us know exactly what pre-examination requirements you are needing before you join the Mile-building Course so that we can ensure that you gain the necessary during the weeks aboard.
