RYA Yachtmaster Academy

Here at Ocean Sports Tuition we are passionate about helping you realise your boating ambitions. That’s why we launched our RYA Yachtmaster Power Academy. It focuses on taking our existing passion and capabilities and combining them in a complete package for our clients.

This flexible 2 week programme is designed to aid in completion of your RYA Yachtmaster Power qualification – Coastal or Offshore. You can also include STCW, VHF Short Range Certificate, First Aid, PPR if needed. This comprehensive service is ideal for professional seafarers who require qualifications for a career at sea. Additionally, it is well suited to sailors looking to challenge themselves in a recreational setting. You choose which elements are best for you, by attending the relevant sections.


Week 1

The first week is a theory week with the Yachtmaster/Coastal Skipper Theory Course. This is often a major reason for exam failure in our experience, however it is often overlooked. Often this course is ideal to brush up or to really polish your skills. Attending this course also gives the chance to really get to know your strengths and weaknesses. As a result, we can help and guide you in the right areas of your learning. It also gives you chance to meet your fellow crew members. By building that bond, you therefore develop the familiarity and trust to help gain confidence. Whilst this isn’t compulsory, we find it massively advantageous to the success of our candidates.


The weekend can be taken up with any courses such as VHF or First Aid if needed to make sure you are fully ready for the second week.

Week 2

This is the practical preparation week followed by the Yachtmaster Offshore Exam which starts on the Friday and goes through the weekend. This is an intensive, personally focused week of skills and drills putting everything together and allowing you to practice the finer points of boat handling, planning, navigation, crew management and decision making. Consequently, by the end of this course you will have all the attributes of a great Yachtmaster.
