This package is for students wishing to achieve either of the RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Coastal or Yachtmaster Offshore qualifications obtained by independent examination.

Experienced sailors can take the RYA/MCA examination for these qualifications at any time. There is no pre-requisite to hold any prior qualifications. However, the Qualifying Criteria is different for each grade and candidates must hold the SRC (VHF) Radio Operators Certificate and an acceptable First Aid Certificate.

Our experience of Yachtmaster examinations has taught us that it is very important for candidates to be completely up to date with their theory knowledge. The examiner will stand at the backstay, set tasks, and fire random theory questions, and expect you to be as confident with the theory as you are at boat handling.

Our pre-examination Yachtmaster Preparation Week consist of 1 day of assessment of skills, followed by 4 days of focusing and honing weak areas. It also serves to familiarize candidates with the yacht they will be examined on, and the crew they will be working with. Candidates should come to us as potential Yachtmasters. This is not a Yachtmaster course, it is Yachtmaster preparation.

This package is highly recommended to all Yachtmaster candidates.
