MCA/RYA Yachtmaster Sail Training package
MCA/RYA Yachtmaster Sail Training in Barcelona with Barcelona Watersports
An RYA Yachtmaster Certificate of Competence is often the ultimate goal of aspiring skippers. It is a well known, highly respected and an internationally recognised qualification which proves your experience and competence as a skipper.
To attain the RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore candidates must pass a practical examination of their skippering ability. A Yachtmaster must be capable of skippering the yacht on extended offshore passages by day or night. As a Yachmaster, you will be a more experienced Coastal Skipper with the ability to do the same things but more smoothly, for longer periods and in more arduous conditions.
Unlike other RYA yacht sailing courses, there is no formal training to become a Yachtmaster. As long as you have sufficient experience and sea time, you can put yourself forward for an exam to test your skills and knowledge. Many Yachtmaster candidates book themselves into a preparation course to prepare them for the exam. This is not compulsory. The other requirements to become a Yachtmaster are the following qualifications; Professional Practices and Responsibilities (PPR), the Radio SRC Course and First Aid.
