Navigational techniques are refined and expanded upon and whilst chartwork (including electronic aids) and tidal factors are studied to an advanced level, the emphasis is upon the practical knowledge required to become a skilled offshore skipper. Safety is stressed throughout with emphasis on collision regulations, interpreting weather forecasts, boat handling and coping with emergencies, concludes the course at an internationally recognised level of competence.
The course material includes 16 study modules, charts , Admiralty and RYA publications, personal tuition, RYA / MCA Coastal Skipper Yachtmaster shorebased assessment and certificate.
