RYA Shorebased Courses


These courses cover information for both sailing and motor vessels.

Basic Navigation & Safety
This 2 day course is the perfect introduction for anyone new to sailing, motor boating, sea angling, RIBS, diving etc. It gives very basic information for awareness for safe operation of a small vessel in coastal waters.

Day Skipper
A 5 day course covering in more depth the basics of seamanship, coastal navigation, pilotage, etc. aimed at those wishing to safely skipper a vessel in coastal waters.

Yachtsmaster Offshore
This 5 day course is for the more experienced skipper and covers advanced navigation and meteorology to enable the making of safe passages offshore day & night. This course covers the theory required for RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore and Yachtmaster Coastal practical examinations.

Diesel Engine
A 7 hour course covering the basic principles of operation, maintenance and simple fault finding. A single cylinder water cooled diesel engine and other engine parts are used for demonstration purposes.

Radar
A 7 hour course covering the setting up,
limitations, capabilities and use of radar for navigation,
pilotage, & collision avoidance. Simple but realistic PC
simulators are used.

SRC/VHF Radio
From early 2013, the examination fee increases from £30 to £60 and the course is required to be 10 hours, 3 of which may be self learning, followed by examination by an independent examiner.
An alternative is to take the training course in your own time on-line with the training pack provided then come over to Hartlepool at a time convenient to yourself and the examiner to take the exam on the simulators provided.
Coastwise offers both options.

Courses for groups or organizations either at Hartlepool or elsewhere can be tailored to your requirements, with course fees based on travel and numbers.
