Very popular activity. Places usually run out 44 days before leaving
To attain the RYA Yachtmaster™ Offshore candidates must pass a practical examination of their skippering ability. A Yachtmaster is capable of skippering the yacht on extended offshore passages by day or night.

The Yachtmaster Prep is not an exam in itself, but it is the best way in which to prepare for it and the vast majority of successful candidates choose a reputable RYA course provider to undertake such preparation before they launch into the exam itself.

Previous Experience Required:
50 days aboard, 5 days as skipper, 2500 miles logged, 5 passages of over 60 miles including 2 overnight and 2 as skipper (Half the qualifying seatime must have been conducted in tidal waters). VHF radio operator’s certificate and a valid first aid certificate.
There is a minimum age of 18 to take the exam.
We do also highly recommedìnd that you have taken a navigational theory course before attending this course. Please contact us for more infomation.

  • Plan
    Revision of advanced skippering techniques, close quarters handling under power and sail, navigation and pilotage by day and night, man overboard recovery and overall yacht management skills.
    Early in the week the instructor will assess your strengths and weaknesses and coach you in the areas required to pass the examination. We are likely to concentrate on the following areas: passage planning, man overboard recovery, close quarters handling, skippering techniques, navigation in restricted visibility, pilotage and knowledge of the International Collision Regulations. The instructor will debrief you fully as the week progresses and ensure that you get time to ask about and practise on any weaker areas. Before joining the course, students should have the pre-requisite experience, navigation theory to RYA Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster theory level and a thorough knowledge of the Collision Regulations.

    The Yachtmaster Prep course lasts for 5 days at the end of which you are able to complete the exam itself, which takes two further days. This is arranged immediately following the course and will require the engagement of an RYA Yachtmaster examiner who will join the boat for those two days. The cost of the exam is not inlcuded in the course cost there is also a contribution to the examiners trravel of 100€..

My husband, Ian is the course instructor and he is a fully qualified RYA yachtmaster instructor, examiner and with many years of experience.

    Communication with the front office was punctual and clear. Our very trained, professional and empathetic instructor Fabrizio helped us in every phase of the training so that we could get the best possible result. From a technical point of view, which is the focus in such an activity, excellent experience.

    I applied for the competent crew course as a real beginner.
    It's been an amazing experience; Fabrizio, the instructor, is a very well organized person, able to let you learn whatever is in your capabilities.
    I'm glad I got this experience, I'll be more confident with sailboats from now on, and I know that with this RYA course my approach will be more professional
