Experience is king. After learning the theoretical and practical skills, it is important for enthusiastic sailors to start putting some miles under their belt. The type of miles may however differ depending on the needs of our clients.  For those sailors that need to build up a significant number of miles at sea for a Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster qualification, we have defined this offering.


Mile Building 


Description of this experience builder:

As this experience builder is geared towards building up the maximum number of miles, the miles will be made both during daytime and night-time. A 48 hours leg may well be part of it.

We will be practicing watch keeping in shifts, allowing all students to experience sailing at night under a starry sky.

The responsibility to prepare and execute the passage plan for the mile builder will be allocated each 24 hours to another student. This will give you the qualifying experience as skipper on long passages during day and night.


What do you get at the end:

Your miles will be signed off in your personal logbook at the end of the mile builder.


What's included:

  • C-MASTERS sailing yacht with skipper
  • Reeds Skipper reference booklet
  • Own cabin for comfort and privacy
  • Food and drinks on board
  • Fuel and mooring fees
  • Free parking at our training location


Supporting courses:

We recommend our C-MASTERS Passage Planning course and our Navigation @ Night course. In addition, the RYA Radar course is very useful.


Supporting books:

To make the most out of your mile builder, we recommend reading the RYA Navigation handbook and the RYA VHF SRC book.
