RYA Yachtmaster Ocean theorie, training for YM Ocean
Four days in the classroom and one day onboard taking ‘real sights’. The shorebased syllabus, and the written exam, is fully covered during the four (long) days in the training room. There is an extra day for training of practical sextant training on an RYA Approved Training Vessel. This addition really makes the theoretical skills come to life, as you will take sights, calculate the time of the meridian, make accurate compass checks, and take practical sights, in real time. Whilst these sights cannot be used in your final exam, they ensure your practical skills match with your theoretical knowledge.
