is designed to assist any candidates for the RYA Day Skipper or Yachtmaster Coastal and Offshore practical and theory courses and exams. The content covers various parts of the syllabus for the different courses.

The RYA training syllabus from Competent Crew to Yachtmaster, is probably the best regarded training for yachtsmen in the World. I regularly teach students who travel to Britain to take the RYA theory or practical courses because the qualifications are so highly respected in the international yachting community.

Many of my students have found that our book shops have the publications they are interested in, at considerably reduced prices compared to other sources and all ordered through Amazon websites.

Essential books for students on RYA courses

All of the above are perfect as notes for any RYA theory course, they will enable you to catch up on any lessons you may have missed or not understood fully. In addition, those who do not have the time to attend a theory course prior to taking a practical one, will find that time spent thoroughly studying the contents of ALL the above publications will be a good grounding in what is required.
