RYA Coastal Skipper
What is the RYA Coastal Skipper practical course?
The RYA Coastal Skipper practical course is designed to give students the knowledge and experience needed to handle and navigate a boat in tidal streams, by day and night. At the core of the Coastal Skipper practical course is the honing and reinforcement of the assertive leadership skills that represent key qualities of a safe, confident skipper.
The course also builds mileage, with students gaining at least 2 x 60 mile passages (weather permitting). These form part of the prerequisites for candidates taking either the Yachtmaster offshore or coastal exam.
Students wishing to undertake one of our Coastal Skipper Practical courses should already have completed their Yachtmaster RYA Coastal Skipper theory course, as well as their Day Skipper Practical Course.
