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

Yachtmaster Coastal

An RYA Yachtmaster™Coastal Certificate of Competence is often the course skippers look to achieve to charter a yacht.  It is a well known, highly respected qualification worldwide, proving your experience and competence as a skipper. 
Unlike other courses in the cruising program, there is no formal training to complete in order to become a Yachtmaster™. Instead, provided that you have sufficient experience and sea time, you can put yourself forward for an exam to test your skills and knowledge. 


Pre Course Requirements

The RYA Yachtmaster Coastal course requires that you have an SRC VHF certificate & a valid First aid at sea certificate.

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.
