What will it be like?
A chance to put theory into practice. If you’ve just finished a winter RYA theory course and are wondering what to do next this is the trip for you. Come along and see how to navigate safely on coastal and offshore passages. On this milebuilding trip from Plymouth to Oban you will be able to learn from us about course shaping and plotting, tides (including secondary port calculations), passage planning and passage making, how to interpret weather forecasts and collision regulations,
Our milebuilding trips are all about enjoying sailing and the beauty of being at sea without the pressure of being on a course. We are not working to a syllabus, but planning the tides and deciding the course based on the conditions around us. This trip is a great step us for Day Skippers and Flotilla sailors and a perfect opportunity for the more experienced sailor to develop the skills required for the yachtmaster exam.
