RYA Coastal Skipper and Yachtmaster Offshore Theory via Distance Learning
East Anglian Sea School's Coastal Skipper Yachtmaster Offshore distance learning course allows you to study anywhere in the world and at your own pace within the time frame of 1 year from date of enrolment.
This is an advanced course that follows on from the RYA Day Skipper Theory. This course will develop further knowledge and skills on navigation, pilotage, collision regulations and meteorology.
It is for those who are looking at embarking on difficult passages, for example, offshore and/or at night and is suitable for sail and motor. This course is also the theory foundation for anyone wishing to progress towards RYA Coastal Skipper and Yachtmaster Offshore practical qualifications.
Suggested Previous Experience
Some prior knowledge is required. If you have the RYA Day Skipper certificate (or an equivalent level of knowledge) then this is the right course for you. It shouldn't matter if you are a bit 'rusty' because our correspondence course includes a lot of Day Skipper level revision material.
You will find the course extremely challenging if you cannot read a chart and carry out basic plotting and tidal calculations. If you are a complete beginner then this is unlikely to be the right course for you.
