Coastal Skipper by day and night.
Tel: +1 (268) 721 3456
Having mastered the techniques required for local skippering by day on your Day Skipper course, you are now ready to venture further afield.
RYA courses are run by Miramar Sailing School
Now you have learned the basics. You are now ready to train for skippering offshore out of sight of land.
Your knowledge becomes more advanced as you progress to this next level.
RYA Coastal Skipper & Yachtmaster Offshore Theory – Go deeper into the theory of skippering.
Delve further into the topics you learnt in the Day Skipper course. It will prepare you to take responsibility for the vessel and crew on offshore passages by day and night.
As with the Day Skipper course there are two options available.
1. A face-to-face classroom course, over five/six days, in our open air classroom. This is our recommendation.
2. An Online Study course that needs 40/50 hours of home computer study. An online tutor will guide and assess your work on completion. This course is delivered by Navathome.
Either option will achieve the Coastal Skipper & Yachtmaster Offshore Theory course completion certificate.
RYA Coastal Skipper Practical – Make safe passage overnight and out of sight of land.
This is a five day live-a-board practical sailing course.
Once again it provides the opportunity to put the theory knowledge into practice by being responsible for the yacht and crew in a more demanding environment.
You will learn passage planning, offshore navigation, pilotage, more advanced meteorology, and the skill of provisioning for longer passages.
The course should achieve the Coastal Skipper Practical course completion certificate.
There is a lower age limit of 17 for this course.
This qualification provides eligibility to apply for the International Certificate of Competence (ICC), and can be Commercially Endorsed by the Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA) . This endorsement permits you to operate in a professional capacity.
The ICC is generally considered to be the “passport” to bare boat chartering in many regions of the world.
Single ladies may book a course once a minimum group of two has booked. A 5% fully refundable deposit will reserve your place.
