Before we accept your booking we have a discussion with you to allow us to understand your capabilities and experience. This allows us to set you an action plan to help you achieve the best chance of success, The RYA Yachtmaster Offshore practical examination will test not only your boat handling skills but also your theory level and all aspects of the RYA syllabus and your ability to manage your crew and your yacht. As Mallorca is non-tidal you can expect lots of questions on tidal heights and tidal passage planning.

The RYA Yachtmaster Offshore Course includes a 6–7 day theory class with YM Instructor Mark Wright and Seawake Instructor Steve Bell

Followed by 4 – 5 days of practical preparation where you can brush up on any skills and practice implementing the theory in a practical application. This will include all the practical skills you need to show in your exam including night exercises on navigation, man overboard drills and single engines skills.

This is followed by a two day practical exam with an RYA Yachtmaster Examiner who will examine and test your theory and practical skill. The examiner can ask you questions on any part of the RYA Yachtmaster Offshore syllabus and is likely to see any weaknesses you have. The better prepared you are the better chance of a successful outcome.

To become a Yachtmaster, we expect your motor yacht handling skills to be very competent and we use the practical training to coach you on how to implement your theoretical knowledge and brush up on any areas of weakness. Most of the 12 day training is spent on theory and implementation of theory in a practical application. You can expect to be required to study during the evenings to help you get the most out of this course.
