This RYA Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster theory course represents advanced training for more experienced skippers building on the Day Skipper course and is brought to you in conjunction with our partners Navathome. This course equips you to navigate safely on coastal and offshore passages.

This course will take your theory knowledge to the standard required for the Yachtmaster Coastal and Yachtmaster Offshore practical exams, concentrating on advanced navigation and meteorology skills.

As with the Day Skipper shore based course, the RYA’s specially designed chart plotter software will be used during the course to give you a realistic taste of modern electronic navigation.

Shore based RYA course prices

We offer a variety of prices depending on numbers and how long we feel you will need to complete the course as since we keep the numbers low, the time in the classroom can be tailored to meet your particular requirements. We can even start the course on-line before you come to the school so we can optimise your time in the

As a guide we have suggested the following packages.

Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster 2 people with full board accommodation.   £795

This is only a little more than the normal charge in the UK for the course alone but includes full accommodation and course packs.

You can add the Diesel Engine Maintenance and Radar courses for only £50 per person per course a huge reduction on the normal price of £110!

Please feel free to suggest a program that would suit you.

Pre course requirements

There are no pre-course requirements for the RYA Day Skipper theory course but some sailing knowledge is helpful.

The Training Centre

This course is run in our fully equipped classroom in Spain. Numbers are always kept low and we can even do one to one teaching at a price no more than is charged for participating in a large class in the UK.

This level of attention has proved very successful in the past succeeding with students where others have failed.

You might want to add on some additional modules such as RYA Diesel Engine Maintenance and/or RYA Radar which can be added at a highly discounted price.

Courses can include an accommodation package at our centre which is situated in the Spanish hills on the Mediterranean coast of Spain just down a short trip from Barcelona. The cost of staying is incredibly good value and is available for most of the year.

Why not include the course as part of a holiday. We can adjust the program and the duration of the course to allow plenty of vacation time so it is possible to go home with a qualification as well as a tan!

Position fixing

Course shaping and plotting

Tidal knowledge

Use of almanacs and admiralty publications

Electronic position finding equipment

Taking and interpreting forecasts

Plotting weather systems
