RYA Motor Cruising Scheme


The RYA Practical Motor Cruising courses range from a minimum of two days for the Helmsman’s course, four days for Day Skipper and five days for the Yachtmaster® Coastal, aboard either your own boat or on the school’s twin shaft Princess 368 motor cruiser.

You can enter the Motor Cruising Scheme at any stage subject to your knowledge and experience; there is no need to start at the beginner’s level.

The full details of the scheme can be found in the RYA’s publication “Motor Cruising & Yachtmaster® Scheme”. RYA publication G158 14.

If you are unsure which course is the correct one for you then we suggest you call us to discuss your experience and we can then advise what course would best suit you. All of our RYA Motor Cruising courses can be packaged with the various support courses to suit your individual requirements, contact us for more information.
