Offshore Skills Development weekend - Advanced Pilotage

7th - 9 October

Skills Development weekend from Fri eve 7th Oct to Sunday 9th Oct, skipper by an RYA Instructor.


This is a weekend focussed on honing pilotage skills. It will give attendees the chance to practice and build on the pilotage techniques that will have been learned/practiced in their RYA Day skipper theory/practical.

The course will give you confidence to navigate at close quarters in day, night, or fog even if your electronics have failed.

This course is suitable for those whose skills are at RYA Day skipper level or higher. Below is an example of what will be covered though the exact makeup of the weekend will be (as always in sailing) to some extent determined by conditions and strength of crew.


Working up and following forward/back bearings

Identifying and following transits, both charted and natural

Using clearing bearings to avoid dangers

Anchoring on predetermined spot

Tacking safely between unseen shallows or dangers

Night pilotage

Latticing (quick position plots when tacking up wind at night)

Following depth contours

Blind Navigation (simulated fog navigation)

Cost of the training is £355
