(6) Coastal Skipper Practical. Here is where things can look a little complicated, bear with me. Students who attend a Coastal Skipper practical course at a Sailing School and demonstrated a certain level of competence as judged by the yachts' Instructor over 3 weekends or 5days, will be awarded the RYA/MCA Coastal Skipper Course Completion Certificate. For most people that is all they need. However if you want a "full" Coastal Certificate (as used in the industry for commercial employment) then that is called the RYA/MCA Coastal Skipper Certificate of Competence. For this you will need to sail with an externally appointed, independent Examiner who will assess your skippering skills.

(7) Yachtmaster Practical. A similar procedure exists for students who wish to hold the RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Certificate of Competence. Sailing Schools can offer you a Yachtmaster Prep. course which will last 2-5 days. There is no certificate and should you decide to enter for the Yachtmaster Practical Assessment then you will need to arrange it through the school or directly through the RYA website/office in Southampton.
