RYA Yachtmaster Power Coastal and Offshore Fast Track courses are run in Plymouth, Devon on our 10m Lochin 33 based in Sutton Harbour opposite the fish quay.
The training We teach a maximum of 4 students onboard and often have smaller groups. For Fast Track students we have put together a four week Fast package, ideally suited for anyone needing to top up their sea time and milage.
The package starts with 5 days in the classroom for the Yachtmaster Theory course. During the next 2 weeks, students will spend 10 days afloat building miles, completing skippered passages, skills building and plenty of boat handling. The final week is another practical week preparing for the Yachtmaster exam which starts on the Friday.
During the 4 weeks of the course it would be possible to add on 1 day specialist courses such as Radar, Diesel Engine, VHF, First Aid and Survival.

Why choose SeaRegs? We are the only school in Plymouth with our own motorboat for RYA and MCA training. Yachtmaster prep courses can be arranged anytime provided our boat and an instructor are available.
Past students have chosen SeaRegs for their training as we are able to help them gain some of the other qualifications necessary to work on support vessels in the Renewables Industry. Yachtmaster training and exams can be arranged to combine with our Master 200 and STCW courses.
The boat In the 1980’s, the R.N.L.I. chose the Lochin 33 as the basis for the ‘Brede Class’ Lifeboat and these craft served them well for almost 20 years. The same craft were adopted by the South African equivalent of the R.N.L.I. known as the National Sea Rescue Institute (N.S.R.I.). The Lochin 33 were also built for pilot’s, police patrol craft and passenger carriers as well as many charter and leisure vessels. Our Lochin 33, ‘Knights Challenge’, was built in 1990 and has a long wheelhouse, safe stable working deck and twin Yanmar diesel engines on shaft drives. She is equipped with chartplotter, colour radar, AIS, Navtex, intercom, autopilot and twin VHF radios. She is Category 2 commercially coded (up to 60 miles) for up to 8 persons.
The instructors The most important part of SeaRegs are our instructors. They are first class. All are RYA/MCA Instructors and the majority are also RYA/MCA Examiners. They are picked not because of their qualification but because they are experienced seafarers and most importantly patient and effective instructors. They are there to help you achieve your aim.
