Yachtmaster Coastal & Yachtmaster Offshore prep and exam

 

The YachtMaster qualification is for many the pinnacle of their yachting achievement. This special preparation course is an advanced coaching course for those who wish to maximise their chances of passing the exam.  The course gives potential Yachtmasters the opportunity to thoroughly hone their practical skills.

 

Sailing will be in local waters as it is normally found that at this level boat handling in close quarters is required rather than long Channel crossings. We will tailor the course to your needs but our experience usually leads us to emphasize the following subjects: Passage Planning, Skippering Techniques, Man-overboard Recovery, Meteorology, Close Quarters Handling and Pilotage in Restricted Visibility.

 

You are strongly advised to arrive for the course already having a thorough knowledge of the Collision Regulations, particularly in relation to lights, shapes and signals.
