Course Description
A six week foundation course for professional skippers and crew. Delivers the qualifications and experience needed to start a career on superyachts, with the aim of progressing rapidly to First Mate then Captain.

Periods of training ashore in Cowes alternate with time spent living and learning on board our sailing yachts. You visit the main ports in the Solent and some quiet hideaway anchorages, as well as making trips along England's South Coast or across to France and the Channel Islands.

The shorebased syllabus includes vessel familiarisation, navigation and pilotage, rules and regulations, safety and seamanship, food safety and hygiene on board, basic yacht maintenance, diesel engine maintenance, radio techniques, weather forecasting. You will also complete five days of STCW 95 Basic Safety Training.

On completing this course you will be an accomplished crew member with a practical understanding of the principles of sailing a yacht. You will be growing confident in the role of skipper in sheltered waters and have experienced some short offshore passages. You will also have achieved a list of useful qualifications, including the radio operator and first aid certificates required to enter an RYA Yachtmaster exam, and STCW95 certificates to support your commercial endorsement as Master of Yachts 200gt.
