When you want to make progress in your RYA scheme towards Yachtmaster, you will need to build up experience and experience comes with the Miles. For those having passed the Competent Crew certificate and looking to go for the Dayskipper, Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster certificate, a minimum amount of miles is needed, different foreign ports and a number of night hours at sea. For many years we have already planned passages to places like Harwich, Southwold and Lowestoft and other foreign ports. In a few days days, you will be there and back, with loads of experience from a trip to remember.
You board the evening before departure. Together we plan the route, do the victualling and make all necessary preparations. Depending on wind and tide, our departure time will usually be between 20h00 in the evening and 08h00 the next morning.
