Online price €205 as deposit, balance of €475 due on the day.

€680 Total Price

(Live Aboard)

This course is for beginners and those who would like to become active crew members rather than just passengers.

Experience living on board and really get to know the boat.

Virtually all the course is hands on. You are the crew. Without you the sails won’t go up and the boat won’t be steered. By the end of the course you should:

  • Be able to steer.
  • Handle sails.
  • Keep a lookout.
  • Row a dinghy.
  • Assist in all the day to day duties on board.

You will also have visited some interesting places and had an enjoyable holiday!

5-Day Coastal Skipper Prep

(Live Aboard)

Advanced skippering techniques for yachtsmen and women with considerable knowledge of sailing and navigation, wanting to undertake coastal passages by day and night.

Like the Day Skipper course, this course consists of skippered passages in a variety of situations. Each trainee will skipper more challenging passages and learn more about:

  • Passage planning.
  • Pilotage by day and night.
  • Boat handling.
  • Safety and emergency situations.

It is a satisfying but intensive week, with candidates often working towards a Certificate of Competence.

We advise that you complete the Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Offshore shorebased course beforehand as there is insufficient time to teach you theory during the week. Coastal Skippers should be able to undertake more difficult passages by day and night and handle the yacht in more demanding conditions.

By the end of the course you should have the knowledge, if not the experience, to become a Yachtmaster.

5-Day Offshore Skipper Prep

(Live Aboard)

An RYA Yachtmaster Certificate of Competence is often the ultimate aim of aspiring skippers. It is a well known, highly respected qualification worldwide, proving your experience and competence as a skipper.

Unlike other courses in the cruising programme, there is no formal training to complete in order to become a Yachtmaster. Instead, provided that you have sufficient experience and seatime, you can put yourself forward for an exam to test your skills and knowledge.

Many Yachtmaster candidates choose to complete this 5 day preparation course with some tailor-­made tuition to prepare them for the exam.

Yachtmaster

Day Skipper – Shorebased Navigation

A comprehensive introduction to cruising for inexperienced skippers. This course equips you with enough knowledge to navigate around familiar waters by day. A basic knowledge of lights is also included to introduce you to night cruising.

We are continually updating our courses to take into account developments in technology and the electronic navigation aids now available on most cruising boats. In conjunction with the UK Hydrographic Office we have developed a chart plotter specifically for use on training courses, giving you a realistic insight into electronic navigation. Use of this plotter is an integral part of our Day Skipper shorebased course.

The course is taught over 40 hours with two exam papers. It can be covered as a series of short sessions, as an intensive week-­long course.

As with the Day Skipper shorebased course, the RYA’s specially designed chart plotter software will be used during the course to give you a realistic taste of modern electronic navigation.

The course is taught over 40 hours with three exam papers. It can be covered as a series of short sessions, as an intensive week­-long course.

This course is normally run as a 2 day course:

  • Day 1 being a refresher for the Navigation Theory and the Practical Skills.
  • Day 2 for the written & practical examination.
  • Extra skills training such as Med Mooring can be included.
  • Option to sleep on board if required.

ICC entitles the holder to skipper a boat up to 20m both motor and sail. (motor only if no previous sailing experience) We also examine for the Inland Certificate (CEVNI) as required to use inland waterways.

VHF Fixed Radio

VHF Course : GMDSS 1 & 2 Radio Operators Licence

This is one of the more important specialist courses. It is essential for any yachtsman to understand how to operate a marine VHF radio.

Upon successful competion of this course, candidates are awarded the ISA VHF Operators Certificate. This allows you to legally operate a VHF onboard a vessel, and is an essential component of the Yachtmaster Coast and Yachtmaster Offshore Exams.

The course covers the different uses of a VHF in the maritime world. You will learn the rules and regulations governing radiotelephony, how to assess different situations where a VHF is used and how to operate the VHF to make these calls.

This course meets the requirements of charter companies throughout the Med and Caribbean who require that the skipper of the yacht is in possession of a VHF operators cert.

The certificate also meets the requirements for Professional Yachtmaster Skippers looking to get commercially endorsed through the RYA.

The exam will be run by an examiner from the Dept. of Marine (MRAU) and entitles the holder to operate a VHF radio on board any vessel. This is an internationally recognised  commercial-level certificate and entitles the holder to apply for a Ships Radio Licence from the Dept. of Marine who will issue the Ships Licence with a unique Call Sign and MMSI number.

The course also covers the GMDSS requirements with the additional safety equipment such as DSC, EPIRB, Navtex, SART AND PLB’s.

Practical and theoretical training are provided and will cover Distress, Urgency, Safety and Routine radio usage. Your Safety is in your own hands.
