This course is designed to build on your experience, assuming good knowledge of the theory of navigation and weather.

You will need to be a competent helmsman, with a level of boat handling and general skippering equal to that of Day Skipper practical.

The course is primarily intended to improve and develop existing abilities and should not be taken without the necessary prior experience.

There is a degree of assessment within the course and is therefore not an automatic progression. Candidates will be instructed and assessed on skippering a yacht safely on coastal and offshore passages throughtout the course. As well as the course completion Certificate there is also the option to take the examination for RYA DoT. (Please see Coastal Skipper / Yachtmaster Exam Prep level 6)
