Yachtmaster Ocean Theory course - £310

Classroom Ocean
Theory courses are great at providing the background knowledge to enhance your boating, however not everyone has the time to spend a week or several weekends in a classroom attending a course. Evening classes are another option but require a long commitment as you need to attend once a week for at least 20 weeks.

Interactive learning offers an alternative to the traditional methods of teaching theory courses, allowing you to learn when you want and where you want, all you need is access to a computer and the internet. This online course is delivered by Navathome, a RYA Recognised Training Centre specialising in online training. The course can be booked via our website.

Any instructor support needed during the course will be provided by ourselves on behalf of Navathome, either via telephone or email, at no extra cost. We monitor all course answers, and feedback / assistance can be given when requested or if necessary.

If you feel you need a little extra personalised assistance, we can also offer Blended Learning, combining online courses with 1:1 tuition. Please contact us for prices. 


The course

Students wishing to achieve the RYA Ocean theory certificate Ocean Yachtmaster should be at Coastal / Yachtmaster level with their exiting theory. Apart from a thorough knowledge of position fixing and plotting the course requires a good understanding of latitude and longitude.

The Ocean Yachtmaster theory course is for those who have a passion for sailing and navigation. It is a wonderful course that will keep you occupied for hours on end.

It is not just about finding position from stars and planets, it covers weather, passage planning, watch keeping and much more.

The course takes approximately 40 hours to complete with an assessment of 2 parts taken in one sitting of 2 hours.

Why choose an interactive course?

The course is made up of detailed lessons, most of which are animated for easy learning. Each lessen is followed by a set of questions which can be answered online. Once an answer is submitted the feedback is instant in the form of a detailed answer page. Some answers will be forwarded to your instructor who will provide personal feedback and help where required.

One of the major advantages of using the SeaRegs Day Skipper course is being able to know instantly how you are doing. Even the answers that you have submitted to your instructor are provided with instant feedback.

You can book your course on line and be working straight away on the sections where the RYA pack is not needed. Your RYA pack, containing your exercises and assessment, will be posted first class post the same day.

The SeaRegs suit of courses is professionally written in association with Navathome by fully qualified RYA instructors with a background in e-learning and computer programming.

These can be offered for free to anyone who books an online course with us and who requires an invigilated assessment for a commercial endorsement or as a Master 200 prerequisite.
We can also arrange invigilated assessments at our sites around the country, or elsewhere in the world, at cost.
