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.
The importance of proper passage planning is often underestimated by beginning sailors. So wrong, as the theory for drafting a passage plan, learned during a shorebased course, deserves to be put in practice for the safety and comfort of the crew and the vessel. Being well prepared before going offshore will make all the difference during your voyage.
This course is a 'must do' for skippers who wish to learn a pragmatic and practical method for planning passages on coastal waters or further offshore.
This course is offered in two formats.
A one-day classroom version of the course is available for anyone who wants to practice drafting a pragmatic and practical passage plan, including the following topics:
A four-day version of this course combines the classroom course on drafting a plan with execution of a passage plan at sea.
We recommend the RYA shorebased courses for acquiring sufficient knowledge on navigation and the C-MASTERS experience builders to practice passage making.
