Introduction to Courses

NMCS Sailing School - RYA Sailing courses, Yachtmaster, Coastal Skipper & Day Skipper Theory

RYA courses

All the RYA courses have been written to meet (and at times exceed) the specific syllabus requirements of the Day Skipper, Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster and Yachtmaster Ocean courses respectively and will ensure that you are well prepared to meet the standards expected for RYA assessment papers. Upon successful completion of the course we are authorised to issue the appropriate RYA certificate.
