Yachtmaster Ocean is the pinnacle of the RYA Sail Cruising & Yachtmaster Scheme. In addition to this theory course there are criteria to be met before sitting the RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Ocean examination but, once this is passed, you are considered to be a “Global Sailor” sufficiently qualified to take a yacht anywhere in the world in any conditions.
A pre-course minimum experience level of coastal & offshore sailing is suggested, and it is assumed you have a pre-course experience level of navigation to Coastal Skipper & Yachtmaster Theory
Once you have completed this theory course you may wish to add a further week with us taking our Yachtmaster Ocean Preparation course that puts all the theory into practice with experienced instruction on how to prepare for your non stop ocean passage required for examination.
