Product Information

The RYA Yachtmaster Handbook is the first official and definitive guide for anyone preparing for the world-renowned RYA Yachtmaster Offshore and Coastal examinations.

It will not only appeal to both leisure sailors and motor cruisers; there is a section covering commercial endorsement requirements for those who wish to use their qualification professionally.

It describes what you can expect on the day of the examination, the thinking behind the test and what the examiner is looking for.
 
With the aid of some stunning illustrations, it is designed to make you focus on areas where skills can sometimes be lacking, with the aim of setting you up for life beyond the Yachtmaster exam as a competent and confident skipper.

Although the chapters include subjects that are covered in earlier books, this assumes knowledge at (or close to) RYA Yachtmaster level and highlights what a candidate needs to be thinking about: 

  • What is an RYA Yachtmaster?
  • Where do I go from Here?
  • Tidal Streams and Heights 
  • Passage Planning & Passage Making
  • Seamanship and Stability 

The author James Stevens can take much of the credit for the success and international acceptance of the RYA Yachtmaster scheme, and is now the chair of the RYA Yachtmaster Qualification Panel.

Also available as an eBook.

Reviews

It does cover all the “need to know” material necessary for success in the exam... Given that the author… is the creator of the current RYA Yachtmaster scheme for sail and power boats, it must be a near-perfect guide and it must surely offer a better guarantee of success than many similar books… Sailing for Southern Africa, September 2013

Clear-sighted and easy-to-understand…Yachting Monthly, August 2013
