RYA Yachtmaster Coastal/Offshore Theory: Classroom


A Yachtmaster™ Offshore is competent to skipper a cruising yacht on any passage during which the yacht is no more than 150 miles from a safe haven.

The RYA Yachtmaster™ Coastal has the knowledge needed to skipper a yacht on coastal cruises, but does not necessarily have the experience needed to undertake longer passages.
