·50 days experience at sea, 5 days as skipper, with 5 passages over 60 miles, including 2 overnight and 2 as skipper and covered a minimum of 2,500 miles including 1,250 in tidal waters.

The Instructor will prepare you for the Yacht master exam by improving your passage planning, skippering techniques, man-overboard recovery, meteorology, close quarters handling and pilotage in restricted visibility. Thorough knowledge of the Collision Regulations, particularly in relation to sound signals, lights and shapes, is essential.

Please note : Because each student has individual abilities, we can tailor any number of days to suit your level of experience prior to the Yacht master exam.
