RYA Coastal Skipper Theory / Yachtmaster Preparation

This course syllabus covers preparation for the RYA Coastal Skipper Practical courses but may also be taken just prior to the RYA MCA Yachtmaster™  Offshore examinations. Skills gained during this course benefit the Coastal Skipper student by providing the necessary knowledge required for skippers to carry our more demanding coastal and night passages however this is also necessary for those who decide to go straight to the RYA MCA Yachtmaster™ Offshore examinations by bringing students to the standard required to be able to plan both their examination passage as well as all subsequent passages planned with their resulting RYA MCA Yachtmaster™ certificate.

We do devote some time to the revision of Day Skipper Theory topics however, it is assumed that you have a good knowledge of these topics. Your instructor will move on to the more demanding topics in order to provide enough time for explanations and questions about the new theory topics. We ask that students revise the day skipper syllabus prior to starting the Coastal Skipper Theory course.

The course is taught over 40 hours with three exam papers.
