Sail with those of similar ability and aspirations while our Yachtmaster Instructors tailor their coaching to the requirements of the individuals and carry out mock exams. SRC (GMDSS) and First Aid certificates are required for those being assessed.
Candidates requiring an exam must mention this at the time of booking to receive an RYA / MCA Exam Application form.
Currently we believe we are the only teaching establishment that delivers this 19 night/day opportunity. After years of experience in the field we know that some sailors need this intensive period to get their skills up to the level required for examination. Often it is guided by time constraints, perhaps time away from the sport or even personal preference to their style of learning. It is a really valuable syllabus and a number of our top level instructors will have input over the period.
The cruising activities are enjoyed onboard one of our 2 yachts. The Centre currently has a 37ft Salona named Somerled and a 38ft Salona named Santa Vey. Both yachts are perfectly suited to the waters around the Clyde and the west coast of Scotland. They provide up to 5 berths for clients and all courses and cruises are led by one of our experienced instructors.
Food is provided throughout the cruise. If required, waterproof sets and lifejackets are on-board each yacht. All other clothing is the responsibility of the sailor and we recommend bringing warm comfortable clothing which is easy to layer, a warm hat, gloves, suitable footwear, towel and toiletries and of course suntan lotion.
If you are choosing an RYA course requiring individual chart work, then please bring your own navigation tools.×
This intensive cruising course will start at 0930hrs on the Monday morning at Largs Yacht Haven reception area. Course will finish at Largs Yacht Haven approx.. 1400hrs on the last day, after examination and debrief.
Food provisions for the duration are on-board, you are free to bring extras that you may wish. Eating ashore is sometimes an option but is an additional personal expense and not always on offer due to location.×
