RYA TRAINING - SAIL CRUISING


Yachtmaster Exam Preparation

Conventional Yachtmaster Exam Prep or Fast Track Training?

  • Reasons for qualifying as a RYA  Yachtmaster (Offshore or Coastal) may vary. It may be a natural progression as you develop experience or you may have sailed for a long time and wish to baseline your experience, or perhaps you intend working commercially.

  • Alternatively you may be relatively new to sailing and want to progress quickly during a career break or qualify in the shortest possible time to change career

  • Either way, you need to pass the RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore (or Coastal) exam to operate commercially in the UK

  • If you wish to build experience gradually prior to taking the exam, Ambition Sailing can prepare you for the exam. We have a unique approach which is tailored to individual needs. The high quality of our exam candidates has long been recognised by RYA examiners.

The Details

  • Ambition Sailing has an impressive pass rate - the high calibre of students is commented on by examiners!

  • Each individual has differing needs. Please call us to discuss your requirements.

  • Our unique support package ensures you receive personalised yachtmaster training and preparation rather than a 'sheep dip' approach!

  • Key aspects of the preparation include refining skipper technique, for example delegation and crew communication. We will also identify and break any bad habits formed over previous years and help you overcome any areas of particular difficulty

For the RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Coastal & Offshore examinations, Ambition Sailing ensures thorough preparation by providing intensive practical and theory training. We operate a four-stage process as shown

Discuss Individual Needs Identification of individual training needs and the production of a personal preparation plan.
Shorebased Preparation 
(Optional)
Depending on individual needs, clients may review some, or the entire shorebased syllabus at one of our shorebased training locations. 

One weekend is usually adequate.
Practical Preparation Either conducted as part of one of our RYA practical training courses or as own boat tuition. Involves rigorous preparation covering navigation, pilotage, mooring, anchoring and manoeuvring under sail and power. We will ensure that you have ample opportunity to practice all necessary competencies such as blind navigation, pile mooring, and night pilotage.

Typically 4 days practical training is required.
RYA / MCA Examination We recommend that exam preparation is followed immediately by the MCA exam, which we are happy to arrange on your behalf. This usually lasts from 24-48 hours depending on the number of candidates.
