Fast Track Sailing Courses
If you’re looking for a career in the sailing industry, we will teach and refine your skills and when you’re ready, organise examinations for RYA / MCA qualifications.
Prior to the Yachtmaster exam we will ensure you have achieved a minimum of 2,500 sea miles at least half of which will be tidal. In reality you will log considerably more! Quality miles and expert tuition.
It is recommended that you undertake an MCA medical examination prior to the course in order for you to do your final Yachtmaster examination... Contact us for details.
RYA Yachtmaster Department of Transport (DoT) certificates with option to add commercial endorsement and opening the path to Cruising Instructor and/or Ocean Yachtmaster.
The course includes:
If you put in the study hours both on and off the water you can achieve the coveted Yachtmaster qualification, known and respected throughout the world.
Fastrackers - you must come with your own life jacket and harness, waterproofs, deck shoes, Breton / Portland plotter or similar, dividers, notepads and pencils. Please phone for advice before purchasing expensive items.
All students are ready to be prepared for the Yachtmaster Exam. The weeks training will be intense, focusing on the weaker points to ensure you are well above the standard required. We coach you at your pace so you benefit from one-to-one coaching. And finally the Big Day!
You will be so well prepared, having sailed so many quality sea miles, entered a host of different marinas, sailed tidal and non-tidal waters that, although maybe a little nervous, you’ll skipper with confidence.
Following your successful Yachtmaster exam you can apply to undertake the Cruising Instructor course. This will qualify you to teach up to Day Skipper level under an RYA approved sea school.
