Frequently Asked Questions
What is included?
We provide a practical onboard preparation with an experienced instructor and then using the same boat we arrange for the examiner to arrive at the end of the preparation.
What is the pass rate?
It is important you check you are ready for the exam with the RYA pre requirements in milage and experience and then we can help prepare you for the exam.
Is it a tidal exam?
The course is in non tidal waters but the RYA Yachtmaster is for both, so it is very important your knowledge of tidal waters is good and completing the RYA Yachtmaster theory course helps practice this. The examiner will ask questions on tides during the exam
