RYA TRAINING - SHOREBASED COURSES


RYA Yachtmaster Ocean Course

Weekend or weekday 5 day RYA training courses, based in Southampton.

Advanced training for more experienced skippers building on the Day Skipper course. This course equips you to navigate safely on coastal and offshore passages. It allows some time for revision of the basics and then moves on to advanced navigation techniques.

Unravel the mysteries of astro navigation, using a sextant, ocean passage making, worldwide meteorology and electronic navigation aids.

This course is for those aspiring to blue water cruising and is ideal for holders of theYachtmaster Offshore certificate who are preparing for their first ocean passage.

Prior to the course your navigation skills should be at the standard of the Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Offshore shorebased course.

If you are working towards your Yachtmaster Ocean Certificate of Competence, completion of this shorebased course exempts you from the written exam.

The Details

Course dates are by arrangement. Please see our programme of current prices (from £395).

The instructor for your course will be a fully qualified RYA Shorebased or Yachtmaster (Ocean) Instructor.

There is one exam paper at the end of the course to test learning and understanding of world meteorology and principles of astronavigation.

Number of students varies depending on location. Please see Locations and Formats for more information.

If you prefer the course to be run for just you and maybe your partner or a group of friends at a location of your choosing, this is also possible - call us for our private instruction rates.
