RYA Yachtmaster Coastal & Offshore Preparation Week and Exam in Barcelona with Barcelona Watersports

To attain the RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore candidates must pass a practical examination to demonstrate their skippering ability. A Yachtmaster is capable of skippering the yacht on extended offshore passages by day or night.  He or she will be a much more experienced Coastal Skipper and will be able to do the same things but more smoothly, for longer periods and in more arduous conditions.

The Course: Early in the week the instructor will asses your strengths and weaknesses and coach you in the areas required to pass the examination. We often work on the following areas: passage planning, man overboard recovery, close quarters handling, skippering techniques, navigation in restricted visibility, pilotage and knowledge of the International Collision Regulations. The instructor will debrief you fully as the week progresses and ensure that you get time to work on your weaker areas.

Course Overview: Preparation and brush up for the RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore Certificate of Competence. At the end of the preparation your examiner will ask each candidate to skipper the yacht on several short passages and complete various demonstrations of their skippering and sailing ability over the course of the weekend.

Duration: 5 day preparation, followed by a 2 day exam.

Previous Experience Required: Yachtmaster Theory, 50 days aboard, 5 days as skipper, 2500 miles logged, 5 passages of over 60 miles including 2 overnight and 2 as skipper (half the qualifying seatime must have been conducted in tidal waters). VHF Radio operators certificate and a valid First Aid certificate.

Venue: Port Vell Marina, central Barcelona.

Course Cost: €1295
