This is an advanced course in navigation, students would usually have previously attended a Dayskipper Shorebased Course (or have equivalent knowledge). The instructor will assume you have a reasonable theoretical knowledge of navigation and some experience of putting it into practice. If you have not already then we recommend you also take the Short Range Certificate.
Prior to the course we send out some Collision Regulations to be learnt in advance. On arrival you will receive the RYA Yachtmaster pack and handbook. Three assessment papers and certification are included. We also give all students a Chart plotter CD Rom simulator to take home and run a number of sessions using our live Garmin GPS Chart plotters.
The three assessment papers cover collision regulations, chart-work and meteorology. In addition to these subjects the course also covers safety equipment, stability, electronic navigation, sailing abroad and skippers responsibilities. At the end of the course your instructor will give you a full debrief.
