I am looking for a boat
and owner with whom to take the Yachtmaster exam (anywhere in the UK/Ireland.) I recently completed a course in southern England
and tested for my Certification
. I received the 'Coastal' qualification, but really want to shoot for the 'Offshore' level. I've got 6,800 miles sailed and another 8,000 on power boats. More importantly, however, I just took the RYA exam and can make sure you and the vessel have all your bases covered in terms of what the examiner will be looking for.
I'd crew for you while you're being examined, and then you'd do the same for me. It's common for RYA examiners to examine 2 skippers at a time, and the whole process should take 8-12 hours on the water
. Any skippers who have been thinking about getting your qualification, this is the time to do it!
