Yachtmaster Trainging with Maritime Training

Yachtmaster Course with Mike Dymond Maritime Training

Pre Yachtmaster or Coastal Skipper Examination Training

If you have now decided to go ahead and take the RYA’s Yachtmaster or Coastal Skipper practical examination, make sure that you are giving yourself the best chance of achieving your goal by having a few days training on your boat.

As an RYA examiner I will be able to tune up those boat handling skills, navigation techniques and total boat management principles to the standard that is expected of a yachtmaster or Coastal Skipper. As part of the training package there will be a full debriefing session at the end as well as an ongoing debriefing during the training. I will give you an honest opinion as to your potential on the examination. This type of training package is also suitable for any owner wishing to improve their overall skills but does not wish to take an examination.

Training can include:-

"Man Overboard". All three aspects covered.
Handling in confinced waters under power and sail.
Powering and sailing off a berth.
Use of springs, transverse thrust and rudder in confined water.
Chartwork and navigation update.
IRPCS revision.
Efficient sail trim.
Boat management.

Before arranging the exam make sure that the following prerequisites are completed.

First aid course completed
VHF or SRC certificat held

For Yachtmaster candidates at least 2500 miles logged, at least 5 passages over sixety miles completed, two as skipper, one overnight.

For coastal Skipper candidates at least 800 miles logged (400 if practical course completion certificate is held).

Full details are shown in the RYA log books G15 (Sail) G17 (Power)

An examiner can be arranged for you by the RYA.
