YachtMaster Shorebased Theory Course Sheffield.
An advanced course in navigation.

Yachtmaster is appropriate for students who have already completed the DaySkipper course or who have a background of sailing, motor cruising, or offshore racing. The knowledge gained through this course is essential in order in order to sail cruise safely, day and night, and to pass the sea based RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Coastal or Yachtmaster Offshore examinations. Novices will struggle and you must be prepared for homework assignments.
Course content includes Compass and chart navigation; GPS and Plotter navigation (the package includes the RYA plotting software simulator); Tide vectors and heights including secondary ports and across time zones; Buoyage; Lights; Collision regulations (the seagoing code in some depth); Safety and rescue at sea; Pilotage; Passage planning; Meteorology.
A wide syllabus, with tough questions, which benefits from involvement with others and a relaxed pace.
