Yachtmaster Shore Based

Just completed and achieved Yachtmaster Shore Based certificate.

Many thanks to the great facilities and teaching of Charles in Redbay Training.
http://www.redbaypowerboating.com/

I can fully recommend anyone who wants a good supportive RYA centre to use Charles.

Many thanks also to the other guys and girl who made up our team of 5.



Well pleased

The coastal and yacht master theory are the same course are they not ?

In my opinion it is a very constructive peice of background learning for anyone wanting to venture further afield In Their rib - no way is it just for the rag and stick lead-mines.

Granted they talk about points of sail and all the calculations assume you're doing 7 knts BUT awareness of meteorology; collision regs; and chart work, tides, course to steer are all very relevant.

It's also a pre-requisite knowledge for the advanced power boat course. Anyone attending an ad.powerboat would genuinely struggle to pass without this knowledge.

Now Mr. W don't you be taking the p@@s!

However I did learn a lot more about yachts than I did know.

Daniel the yacht master and Coastal Skipper are very similar but the Yachtmaster demands a deeper level of knowledge and application than CS.

I did Advanced Powerboat a few years ago - along with aforesaid Mr. W - and the deep knowledge acquired in YM wasn't really needed - but then again it would have helped if I was doing it the other way around now.

I thought the Yachmaster included Astro-Navigation, but is that just on the practical?
