Yachtmaster Coastal Skipper qualification

The aim of the ISA Yacht-master Coastal (Sail) course is to provide participants with the basic skills and knowledge necessary to skipper a sailing yacht by night and day in waters with which they are not familiar.

Previous experience / knowledge necessary
For the Coastal Skipper (Sail) it will be assumed that you will have mastered the skills and knowledge covered in The ISA Day Skipper (Sail) course. You must also have the relevant experience of time spent on the water with time as skipper, passage making and night hours. All hours logged on this course will count on the Logbook.

Course Duration
5 days during which you will be living on board the training boat. The course must be completed aboard a sailing yacht.

Assessment is continuous through the course. However Instructors may at their discretion require the use of a formal practical assessment of boat handling skills and or a short written paper or oral interview in assessing your level of background knowledge.

The ISA Yachtmaster Coastal (Sail) Sea-based Course Attendance Certificate may only be awarded following successful course completion.

Sea-miles, night sailing time and skippering hours gained on this course can be logged as experience required for the practical exam as run by the ISA/RYA.
