The Yachtmaster theory course is aimed at those who want to sail further afield, cross the Channel, explore France or the Netherlands, or perhaps sail around the UK!
This classroom-based course is carried out over 8 evenings and a weekend, or over three weekends.
Our instructors may be experienced yachtsmen and women, but they do remember what it is like to be a student. This course takes the theory of navigation to a higher level, and it is strongly recommended that you complete a Day Skipper theory course, as the Yachtmaster builds on that information. After the course you will be competent navigating a yacht in any coastal waters and further afield.
Our motor boat courses can take you from being a novice to a master of your own motor yacht. Starting with either an RYA Start Motor Cruising course or the RYA Helmsman course you can progress through the RYA Cruising Scheme and become an RYA Day Skipper (which will allow you to travel abroad) and on to the revered Yachtmaster qualification. The course are delivered in partnership with Elite and can be delivered on your own vessel or on Elite's 42ft Motor Cruiser based in Chatham.
