The RYA Coastal Skipper course is suitable for more experienced skippers who have RYA Day Skipper or equivalent and a reasonable level of experience. At this stage of your development, we really concentrate on the skills required to skipper a yacht on longer and more complex passages. The instructors will work with you on your decision making, passage planning, navigation techniques, and pilotage skills. There will also be a focus on improved marina skills and preparation for heavy weather.
