RYA Coastal Skipper Theory / Yachtmaster Offshore Theory

Edit

The Caribbean RYA Coastal Skipper Yachtmaster Offshore Theory course is a shorebased course which builds on the knowledge acquired during RYA Day Skipper Theory.

With more advanced navigation theory and exercises of our RYA Coastal Skipper Yachtmaster Offshore Theory course you will become a better skipper and be ready for passagemaking in varied conditions, including tidal knowledge, use of almanacs, collision regulations (IRPCS or “colregs”), pilotage, and, of course, meteorology (including some live examples if you are in a classroom with us) and safety.

This 40 hour course is followed by three exam papers, and can be taken as a classroom course or as an online course (which we highly recommend)

Upon successful completion of the course, you will obtain the RYA Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Offshore Theory Certificate, which will be a basis for your Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster level practical courses and the minimum knowledge required for Yachtmaster Coastal and Yachtmaster Offshore practical exams.

We suggest that all skippers take the RYA SRC Radio Course, for knowledge and safety. And taking the RYA Diesel Engine course is also a good fit at this time… just in case.

Prerequisites for the RYA Costal Skipper Theory course:

The course exposes concepts such as navigation on nautical and electronic charts, meteorology, tide calculation of primary and secondary ports, safety management, international regulations for preventing collisions (IRPCS) and recognizing lights, lights and sound signals.

At the end of the course a written exam is taken to obtain the certificate. Included in the course fee are the RYA teaching materials package, (Training Charts, Yachtmaster Theory Notes book, educational supplements, and the use of the Tidal Atlas), access to the electronic navigation program, and RYA / MCA certificate issued when passed the final exam.
