Tel: +1 (268) 721 3456

Contrary to popular opinion, the Yachtmaster Qualification is not solely for the male sailors of this world. More and more females are proving they too have the confidence and responsibility to take charge of a yacht in testing conditions.

This was evidenced in 2016 when Zara Roberts was crowned Yachtmaster of the Year.

The RYA/MCA grades of Yachtmaster Coastal & Yachtmaster Offshore spotlight those sailors with solid training and experience.

These are tested under examination.

They are recognised with a Certificate of Competence, rather than a Course Completion Certificate. The Certificate and can only be given after independent examination.

The RYA do not offer formal practical sail training beyond Coastal Skipper.

They do recommend that all candidates undergo a week of Yachtmaster Preparation with Exam.

It is advisable to take the Coastal Skipper & Yachtmaster Offshore Theory course the week before Preparation.

This theory knowledge tends to be “back brained”, But before examination, it is important to have it “front brained”.

The examiner will fire theory questions while he is expecting a practical task to be completed.

This important build up is where Girls Go Sailing and Miramar Sailing Training comes in.
