Training under the RYA program in Montenegro for both beginners and experienced sailors.

Coastal Skipper

Advanced skippering techniques for yachtsmen and women with considerable knowledge of sailing and
navigation, wanting to undertake coastal passages by day and night.
Like the Day Skipper course, this course consists of skippered passages in a variety of situations. Each trainee will skipper more challenging passages and learn more about passage planning, pilotage by day and night, boat handling, safety and emergency situations.


Pre Course Requirements

The RYA Coastal Skipper practical course requires that you complete the RYA Coastal / Yachtmaster Theory shore-based course to ensure you have the navigational skills required for the practical.

You must have completed 15 days ( 2 of which, being the Skipper) of sailing, 300 nautical miles and a minimum of 8 night hours on board a sailing yacht.

Our advice is to pick up the RYA Yachtmaster Handbook and have a stress free read through so you are familiar with some of the vocabulary used on yachts.

*All sailing courses require a certain amount of physical activity.  If you are unsure as to your ability to take part in a course please contact us to discuss.
