At C-MASTERS, we have created a selection of 'must do' courses. After several years of providing training we know which topics and skills are considered complex by students. Most of these topics are covered in the RYA shorebased courses and in practical courses. However, a more intensive training is needed to become a confident skipper.
Do you know that the most damage on sailing boats happens when manoeuvring under engine in harbours, locks and other busy spots?
Boat handling can be very stressful. It should be practiced intensively and as often as possible.
This course is a 'must do' for anyone who wants to master these stressful situations.
Learn the correct methods for safely manoeuvre a cruising yacht in a harbour and in confined spaces. Understand the fundamentals of boat handling and get the skills to master manoeuvring anywhere.
This course will show you the methods and techniques for parking up successfully in different harbours and in various conditions. You will learn the "base manoeuvres" which will form a solid foundation for all your boat handling skills, and you will learn how to apply them in virtually every situation you may encounter.
The course also focuses on becoming a proficient helmsman, whose responsibilities include attaching the boat to moorings and using special techniques for helmsmanship whilst sailing and motoring enroute.
This course is suitable for skippers at any level. It is certainly highly recommended for skippers wanting to come well prepared to their Yachtmaster certification.
We recommend the RYA Diesel Engine course for in-depth understanding of the functioning of a diesel engine, your trusty friend while manoeuvring under power.
The Reeds Skipper booklet is handy as a reference book.
