RYA Coastal Skipper Practical Training
Advanced skippering techniques for yachtsmen and women with considerable knowledge of sailing and navigation, wanting to undertake coastal passages by day and night.
Like the Day Skipper course, this course consists of skippered passages in a variety of situations. Each trainee will skipper more challenging passages and learn more about passage planning, pilotage by day and night, boat handling, safety and emergency situations.
It is a satisfying but intensive week, with candidates often taking the Certificate of Competence exam (+2 days). Coastal Skipper is the minimum recommended qualification that organisations look for when chartering a boat. The club provides skillbuilder opportunities for club members working towards their qualification and is the minimum standard to apply to the Vice Commodore be a club offshore skipper, which provides plenty of follow on opportunities.
