This course has been specifically designed to prepare you for your RYA DoT Practical examination. Fully designed for candidates who feel they have reached the required standards to pass this rigorous examination, but would benefit from the experience of a qualified instructor to help overcome some of their weaknesses.

The instructor will help you put the final polish on your skills and gain confidence and speed. This 5 & 7 day course is not meant to teach to the Yachtmaster level but to improve your existing abilities in line with the requirements during the examination.

Your examination will follow 3 or 5days preparation with our qualified Instructors. You will be required to already have your VHF Operators licence and a recognised First Aid certificate, plus the pre-examination experience.
