To make it easier for you to find the courses and dates you require, we have now added our Current Course Availability page detailing current courses that are on our schedule and available dates when any course can be scheduled for you. Availability is always subject to bookings received.
If the dates you are interested in are not shown please email us for availability of a yacht and instructor and we will set the course up for you.
Each of our RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Preparation weeks are open to both Yachtmaster Coastal and Yachtmaster Offshore candidates. We also offer a Yachtmaster Ocean Course Package for those wishing to reach the pinnacle of global skippering.
These are the levels that most students aspire to, but they can only be achieved through independent examination. As you would expect, it is a tough examination and some pre-preparation is highly recommended. A “Preparation Week” is not an official RYA course. There is no obligation to undergo one prior to examination.
Our preparation weeks target candidate’s strengths and weaknesses on the first day. Over the next 4 days, weak areas are focused on and honed to examination standard. This offers our examinees the best possible chance of success. Please see our recommended Yachtmaster Theory & Preparation Package. This provides an even better chance of success as it brings theory knowledge right to the front of the brain. Confidence with theory is equally as important as practical skills when it comes to examination.
COURSE FEE: US$1,545 plus exam fee.
