The aim of this 5 day live aboard course is to teach the skills and techniques required to skipper a cruising yacht safely on coastal and offshore passages by day and night.

What will I learn?

The RYA Coastal Skipper Practical course is for the more experienced skipper who has the sailing skills to RYA Dayskipper standard and the theory knowledge to RYA Coastal / Yachtmaster level.

During the week your instructor will guide you through preparations for sea and the safety equipment required for offshore passages, advanced passage planning and pilotage techniques and navigating in restricted visibility. 

A Coastal Skipper needs good boat handling skills and you will have time to practice berthing and mooring under power and sail in various conditions. You will live onboard during the week and we will be visiting many different ports by night and day and you will learn about preparations for adverse weather sailing and emergency situations.

What do I get?

You will receive a complimentary RYA logbook and on successful completion of the course, you will be awarded the RYA Coastal Skipper Practical certificate which is recognised worldwide and can lead to commercial qualifications.

What do I need to bring?

The course includes accommodation onboard and all meals and we will send you a copy of our joining instructions when you book.  These tell you what to bring and where our yacht is located in Bunbury.

Is there anything I need to do before the course?

The RYA Coastal Skipper Practical course does require that you have either completed the RYA Coastal / Yachtmaster Theory course or have equivalent knowledge and have practical sailing skills and experience to RYA Dayskipper level.
