RYA Coastal skipper practical

Motor boat course

For the more ambitious skipper to improve their skills, take charge and learn to make full use of the boat on longer, more complex passages.

Before taking this course it is virtually essential to have attended the equivalent shorebased course, to ensure that time is not wasted teaching theory on board.

An important aspect of this course is learning to take command and make decisions resulting in relaxed, well-planned passages and a happy crew.

Don't expect to coast through without making the occasional error - learn you strengths and weaknesses and gain knowledge from your mistakes. By the end of the course you should  be ready to build on your experience and maybe work towards a Certificate of Competence .
