RYA Shorebased Courses
At Coast and Cairn we offer a large selection of RYA Shorebased courses, designed to support the practical courses available. From navigation and seamanship, to radio communications and first aid, these courses cover a wide range of important subjects.
Acquiring the necessary background knowledge is an essential part of becoming a competent seafarer. For those people who aspire to skippering a boat, completing the relevant shorebased course leads to a higher degree of success during the practical courses and assessments.
In some cases, the courses are mandatory, such as the VHF Short Range Certificate, which is required by law to operate a marine VHF radio. The RYA First Aid course is the minimum requirement for those who wish to commercially endorse their certificates or become an RYA Instructor.
See below for more information on the individual courses available.
