RYA Coastal Skipper Practical

Prometheus Sailing and Sunsail’s Coastal Skipper Practical course is the next step on from the RYA Day Skipper course.

The Coastal Skipper course content is designed to equip students with strong boat handling and navigational skills in tidal waters. It provides them with the knowledge and experience to handle sailing in coastal passages by day and night.

The course includes instruction in passage planning, preparing a yacht for sea (including engine checks and safety briefing), and dealing with emergency situations at sea.

At the core of the Coastal Skipper practical course is the honing and reinforcing of the assertive leadership skills that are key to the making of a safe, confident skipper.
