Have a year of experience before you go sit OOW or you won't have the background to understand what it is you're studying, makes it tougher to learn. If you have a good captain they'll teach it to you in the bridge anyway.

A limited yacht ticket will take you about a year at sea and 3 months in a class room. An unlimited ticket will take 5 years at sea and 3 years in the class room. Big difference.
