About The Event
If you've already completed your Day Skipper Practical and are working towards either the RYA Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster Offshore then this five day practical course will help develop your boat handling and navigation skills to the next level.
We spend the week learning and practicing more advanced manouevring techniques under both sail and power and introduce subjects such as blind navigation and finding unlit marks at night. You'll also have plenty of opportunity to develop your sail trim knowledge - dependent on the group ability level and the weather conditions we may even be able to run a session on how to fly a spinnaker.
The aim of the week will be to grow your skills and confidence further - we will cover both practical and theory topics during the course of the five days so although it is not essential for you to have yet completed the Coastal Skipper and Yachtmaster Offshore theory course, you should have a sound theoretical understanding to Day Skipper level.
This course is the perfect warm up for girls wishing to join our Coastal Skipper Practical week - or for girls who are already at our beyond this level, a great way to build up to the full Yachtmaster Coastal or Yachtmaster Offshore exam.
