Practical Yachting MASTERclasses


Our practical yachting courses are a logical step after following a RYA shorebased course.  We have structured these C-MASTERS courses as a proven mix of useful theory and a lot of practice for developing the skills you need for skippering and navigating a yacht.

The C-MASTERCLASS practical yachting courses are ideal to get important skills under control, and enjoy sailing even more.








Navigation @ Night


Practice your navigation skills during night passages - recognise buoys, light houses, harbour entrances and ships

Practical Radar use


Combined theory and practical course on using a radar for position finding, navigation and safety. A hands-on course to get the most out of your radar system

Passage Planning


The key to avoiding nasty surprises when making a voyage is proper preparation, and it starts with learning how to do passage planning. Pragmatic course on preparing your crew and yacht for offshore voyages

Power Handling + diesel engine


Combined practical course on relaxed motor handling in complex situations, and maintenance and repair of your diesel engine


Safety on Board


Practical course to learn the key messures to improve the safety of your crew and yacht, covering the use of safety materials and emergency procedures (e.g. MOB) on board of a C-MASTERS yacht

Practical Celestial Navigation


Practical offshore course on one of our C-MASTERS yachts on practicing taking sights using a sextant, and determining your position with celestial navigation




Limited number of participants - LESS IS MORE


Our courses have a maximum of 3 participants, both in our classroom and on our yachts. Compared to many sailing schools, this is almost half the number of students on a practical course.  This means more time for our instructors to coach you on complex exercises. For you this means double the amount of time and fun behind the wheel or at the chart table, getting your skills quicker and better developed.  

LESS IS MORE at the C-MASTERS practical courses.





Wouldn't it be great to follow all our C-MASTERS practical courses ?

The combination of well-developed skills in passage planning, navigation during day and night by any means including radar and sextant, complex boat handling and safety training brings unique value to anyone who aims to become a Yachtmaster or a professional skipper.
