Welcome to our C-MASTERS Training Centres in the Netherlands



We offer the full range of RYA sailing, RYA motor cruising, RYA powerboat, RYA personal watercraft and RYA shorebased courses, supplemented with our own masterclasses.

This combination of complementary theoretical and practical training modules will develop your skills all the way from your first experience on a yacht to becoming a confident experienced professional or leisure offshore skipper. 


Our training centres are based at Delta Marina, located at Kortgene, and at Van der Rest Nautic Marina, located in Kats at the Oosterschelde estuary in Zeeland, The Netherlands.

It is a beautiful and exciting tidal area with access to open sea for offshore passages. Without doubt, this is one of the best places for yacht training in the world.
