RYA Shorebased Courses - for both sail and power

Day Skipper
A 5 day course covering in more depth the basics of seamanship, coastal navigation, pilotage, etc. aimed at those wishing to safely skipper a vessel in coastal waters.

Yachtsmaster Offshore
This is a course with 40 hours of instruction, with homework and assessment exams on navigation, IRPCS and passage planning/making. It is aimed at the more experienced skipper and covers advanced navigation and meteorology to enable the making of safe passages offshore day & night. This course covers the theory required for RYA Yachtmaster Offshore and Yachtmaster Coastal practical examinations which can be booked either through a RYA training centre or direct through the RYA. If the candidate wishes to use their own or employer's vessel, or chartering one for the practical exam it must now be no more than 18m in length.

A 7 hour course covering the setting up,
limitations, capabilities and use of radar for navigation, pilotage, & collision avoidance. Simple but realistic PC simulators are used.

From early 2023, the examination fee payable to RYA increased to £70 and the course is required to be 10 hours, 3 of which may be self learning.
Cost depending on numbers attending –
Aprox £60 each for 6 persons up to £115 each for 2 persons.

An alternative is to take the training course in your own time on-line with the training pack provided, then arrange to come over to Hartlepool or to another Training Centre at a time convenient to yourself and the examiner to take the exam on the simulators provided.
Course cost – in 2022 of £75 plus £70 exam fee.

Coastwise offers both options.
Courses for groups or organizations either at Hartlepool or elsewhere can be tailored to your requirements, with course fees based on travel and numbers.
