How to prepare yourself for this course
In order to get the most out of your course, we offer you the possibility to do our online pre-course knowledge quiz. The quiz helps you to test your knowledge and to assess whether you need more preparation in some areas.
Ability after the course
At the end of the course you should achieve a level of seamanship and boat handling up to the standard required to skipper a small cruising motor yacht safely by day and night in tidal coastal waters under various conditions.
After successfully completing this course, we recommend extending your knowledge with some of our RYA specialist shorebased courses, in particular the RYA Radar, RYA Diesel Engine and the Short Range Certificate VHF course, ideally combined with practical training as part of our C-MASTERCLASSES.
The Coastal Skipper Certificate of Competence can be commercially endorsed for anyone with ambition to find work as a professional crew member.
After building up experience and making lots of enjoyable miles, it will be time to prepare for the Yachtmaster examination.
We recommend attending the RYA Coastal Skipper shorebased theory course before following the Coastal Skipper practical course.
