An advanced practical course for yachtsmen and women who have considerable knowledge of sailing and navigation and are usually aspiring towards a Certificate of Competence. Most schools will expected you to have attended the Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster shore based course since there will not be time to teach theory during the week.
Coastal Skippers should be able to undertake more difficult passages by day and night and handle the yacht in confined spaces.
At the end of the course you will be awarded the RYA COASTAL SKIPPER COURSE COMPLETION CERTIFICATE. If you choose to, we will arrange for an RYA examiner to watch in amazement as you strut your stuff, remember, it's an advanced course and you will need a VHF, a First Aid certificate and convince the examiner to be awarded a RYA/MCA COASTAL SKIPPER CERTIFICATE. This is the minimum certificate for entering the industry on a commercial basis.
