RYA Coastal Skipper Yachtmaster – Online

This is an advanced theory course in Navigation for Leisure Sailors or Powerboaters who wish to gain their RYA Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Certification.

The RYA Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster is a more advanced theory course that will build on the knowledge gained from taking the RYA Day Skipper theory course. The course is aimed primarily at leisure sailors and powerboaters who would be looking at undertaking more complex passages further offshore or during the night.

The course itself is sent out to you on a memory stick (Flash Drive) as PC or Mac versions with your course instructions together with access codes and charts. The course is modular and covers navigation and position fixing by compass, electronics GPS and radar, the rules of the road, tides including secondary ports, meteorology and safety at sea.

This course is 50 hours of advanced learning. All the course assessments included in the course work are tutor marked by post or by emailing a scanned copy of your assessment to the tutor directly.


The Course

The syllabus makes provision for some revision of subjects in the Day Skipper course but those who have not acquired the knowledge of the elementary course are unlikely to be able to assimilate all the subjects covered in the advanced course. Ideally you should possess the Day Skipper Shore based certificate before embarking on this advanced course.


The course is fully interactive. Step by step instructions with many colour illustrations, plus over 375+ animations to guide you through the course. We even include cartoons and snippets of navigational history to make the course a very enjoyable experience.


You are allocated your own UK based personal tutor who will mark your assessments and final exams. You can always contact your tutor if you need to clarify your learning.

We do find, that our students get very high marks owing to the step by step instructions and high quality of our course material. The course is ideal for both Power and Sail.
