RYA Yachtmaster Theory
This is a course in more advanced navigation techniques. It is assumed you will have done the Day Skipper theory course. The course teaches you about navigating safely on coastal and offshore passages.
If you have done an RYA Day Skipper Theory Course or owned a boat for a while and have already done a reasonable amount of navigating this shorebased Yachtmaster Theory course is the next step for you. Offering more advanced instruction in navigation and meteorology.
The Yachtmaster Theory course is all classroom based. We provide an extensive set of materials to assist you with the course.
What we provide-
- Coastal/Offshore Pack
- Portland Plotter and Dividers (RRP £37.50)
- Almanac supplied for duration of course (to be returned on completion
Dates- Starting on Tuesday 6th October and running for 4 months
Time- 6:30-9:00 (Minimum of 40 hours of teaching)
*Course limited to 6 students to assist with social distancing*
Minimum Pre Course Experience-
Day Skipper Shorebased Course. Although some time is devoted to revision of the basic principles, you will probably have difficulty keeping up if you haven’t already mastered the subjects covered in the Day Skipper syllabus. If you have owned a boat for a while and have done some of your own navigation but have not had any formal training then you may well be able to go straight to this course without doing the Day Skipper Shorebased course.
Ability after the Course-
Background knowledge to skipper a yacht on coastal passages by day and night.
Offshore and Coastal navigation, pilotage coastal and offshore passages.
