Yachtmaster Oceans Certificate of Competency - Course #306
This is a 6 day shore based theory course in Celestial (Astro) Navigation, Passage Planning and Meteorology is accredited by the RYA and designed to upgrade your RYA Yachtmaster Offshore to an RYA Yachtmaster Oceans Certificate of Competency. After completion of this course, you will conduct a voyage of at least 600nm/at least 96 hours and at least 50nm from land (on your own vessel) taking sights and completing passage planning and then schedule an Oceans Oral Exam with the Royal Yachting Association. This course when endorsed on your CoC fulfills YM Ocean Prerequisite for MCA (Yacht) C.O.C. Upgrades when Commercially Endorsed.
Note: This course assumes that you are still familiar with the Offshore Navigation Subjects.
Please note that the Yachtmaster Oceans Endorsement can only be placed on an RYA Yachtmaster Offshore Certificate of Competency. If you hold an IYT Yachtmaster Offshore or Master of Yachts 200 ticket, you will need to either take the oceans module with IYT or convert your Offshore to an RYA by taking the offshore practical examination again. We would be happy to discuss your options with you.
