Weather At Sea Course For Sailors & Motorboat Skippers

Understanding The Weather

Our one day Weather at Sea course follows the RYA Yachtmaster Theory Course Syllabus and is taught by an RYA Yachtmaster instructor.  It is aimed to help students who may never take the full Yachtmaster Theory course, but would like to improve on their own understanding of weather systems and forecast information.
This course aims to take students with a basic understanding of weather towards the Yachtmaster level.
