Cruising Instructor

Cruising Instructor

This 5 day course is for experienced Yachtmaster Offshore skippers who hold a commercially endorsed RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore qualification who would like to teach the RYA practical syllabus up to Day Skipper level at an RYA recognised training centre.

You must have excellent communication skills as well as a patient and easy-going personality. Any candidates booking onto this course will be required to complete the RYA online pre-course knowledge check before attending.

Candidates should have a depth and breadth of experience which far exceeds that of the minimum requirements for obtaining the Yachtmaster Offshore qualification. Questions from students will often stray outside the core syllabus or be concerned with seeking advice about equipment or situations. Candidates without extensive practical experience are unlikely to complete the course successfully.

Candidates must hold current RYA Membership.

The Cruising Instructor qualification is valid for five years. After this, you are encouraged to move on to the next level and become a Yachtmaster Instructor.

Please contact us to discuss if in any doubt as to your eligibility to attend this course.
