The Yachtmaster Offsore/Coastal prep week is a challenging course for experienced skippers wanting to develop their skills further. It is also an essential qualification for professional skippers wanting to work in the maritime industry.
The five days of preparation for the Yachtmaster Offshore/Coastal will be very intense, with lots of practice, one or two night sails with pilotage into unknown harbours or bays, and continuing to refresh your theory knowledge. Anchoring under sail, coming to and leaving a buoy under sail, as well as Man over board maneuvers will be extensively practiced. It is important for you to know that the basic preparation needs to be already there and that these days will be used to refresh it and refine it. There will be no time to fill major gaps in your boat handling skills, navigation techniques, etc.
Please note that the theory requirements for the practical exam are very high, so in your own interest, we have decided to make the Yachtmaster shorebased theory certificate a pre-requirement for you to be able to attend our practical preparation and exam. At the end of the five days of Yachtmaster Offshore/Coastal preparation, we will spend up to two full days to sit the exam (8 hours per candidate over the two days).
To sit the Yachtmaster Offshore/Coastal exam you will also need a recognized First Aid certificate and an internationally recognized SRC radio license, which you can obtain HERE
