Preparing for your Yachtmaster Certification
Achieving your Yachtmaster is one of the most fulfilling experiences you will encounter, the sense of achievement and new found freedom to explore the world, safely and efficiently is truly one of the greatest feelings.
At SunSea Yachting, all our prep weeks are run by our Principal and Chief Instructor, Colin Jaquiss, who has plenty of experience and an excellent record of success in preparing candidates for the RYA Yachtmaster examination.
We understand the standards required and know how to coach you to achieve them. However, in the end, you have to have the knowledge and skill and be able to demonstrate them on the examination day.
Our preparation course is designed to identify and address any weaknesses and polish skills and performance to achieve a high probability of success at the exam. Candidates must arrive on the course already equipped with the basic knowledge and skill and in reasonably current practice. There is no time to teach this knowledge and skill from the beginning.
We concentrate on advanced boat handling skills, good skippering psychology, pilotage, blind navigation, heavy weather techniques and general fine tuning of your sailing skills and theory knowledge. There will be no long passages, but it will include a fair amount of night sailing and evening revision.
By repetition and refinement of the sailing drills you might be put through on the day, this Yachtmaster prep course will help you to fully prepare for the Yachtmaster Coastal or Yachtmaster Offshore Exam.
