RYA Yachtmaster Power Programme
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 into a complete package for our clients. It’s an intense 2 week programme to gain your RYA Yachtmaster Power qualification – Coastal or Offshore. Plus STCW, VHF First Aid, PPR if needed. A comprehensive service under one roof for professional seafarers needing qualifications for a career at sea or sailors who really want to challenge themselves in a recreational setting with the minimum disruption and the maximum benefit.
The first week is a theory week with the Yachtmaster/Coastal Skipper Theory Course. Something that often gets overlooked but in our experience this is an area that can be a major reason for exam failure. We find even very experienced people like to attend this course to brush up or to really polish their skills. Attending this course also gives us the opportunity to meet you earlier than normal to and really get to know your strengths and weaknesses so we can help and guide you in the right areas as much as possible. It also gives you chance to meet you fellow crew members to really build that bond familiarity and trust so you can be as confident and comfortable for the exam as possible Obviously this isn’t compulsory but we find it massively advantageous to the success of our candidates.
The weekend is taken up with any courses such as VHF or First Aid if needed to make sure you are fully ready for your prep week. An intensive, personally focussed week of skills and drills allowing you to practice the finer points of boat handling, planning, navigation, crew management and decision making.
All the attributes of a great Yachtmaster.
