RYA Coastal Skipper – Who should apply?

RYA Coastal Skipper course is for experienced skippers who want to bring their knowledge and skills to a higher level.  Or to become eligible candidates for a job in yachting industry internationally. It’s also for those who want to embark on more complex, offshore sailing. Sailing is often in low visibility, during bad weather and during the night.

Course is held in the area from Zadar to Split, which might also include outer islands that are further from the shore.

RYA Coastal Skipper – What will you learn?

On RYA Coastal Skipper course you will be the skipper of a sailing yacht from the first day. We will embark on more demanding routes. You will be by the helm during demanding manoeuvres, on sails and on engine. Instructor will take a role of a coach who will point out some wrong habits, show you some tips and tricks of the professionals and reveal some secrets of the trade. Your present knowledge and skills as well as endurance will be put to a real test during the course. Also, you will be put through a constant and strict assessment led by very high criteria.

You will learn how to prepare a yacht and the crew for demanding and long lasting offshore sailing. It will include sailing during the night and crossing traffic separation schemes. You will also learn how to plan that kind of sailing, with regard to the effect of larger weather systems as well as tidal influences. You will learn how to predict weather by the wind direction, shape of the clouds and barometer. Also, you will work on advanced use of GPS and VHF.

You will discover how to do ‘blind navigation’ and how to act in case of fog at sea as well as how to follow the depth contour line in low visibility. You will learn how to use transits in navigation, leading lights and signs and clearing bearings. Also, you will learn how to lead the passage and pilot through a channel as well as enter and exit harbours during the night. Besides that, you will learn how to find a position in the middle of the sea just by using hand bearing compass and maps.

Learn from the pro

You will dock, catch a buoy and anchor on sails as well as move the docked boat just by using the lines. You will learn how and why we trim the mast and how to trim the sails depending on the strength of the wind. Also how to steer the boat using only sails and other means, without using the helm. You will learn how to reef the sails during manoeuvres and how to put a preventer while sailing down wind.

Important part of the course is man overboard actions and procedures, on engine and on sails. Also how to lift a person out of the sea and what to do then. During the course you will also cover a helicopter rescue procedures. How to use a life raft as well as how to use a spear tiller and drogue.

RYA Coastal Skipper – Kome je namijenjen ovaj tečaj?

RYA Coastal Skipper tečaj namijenjen je već iskusnim skiperima koji žele usavršiti svoje vještine i/ili postati poželjni kandidati za posao u nautici u međunarodnim okvirima. To uključuje i one koji žele ići na dalje i složenije, odobalne plovidbe, često u smanjenim uvjetima vidljivosti, lošijim vremenskim uvjetima te noću.

Tečaj se odvija na području od Splita do Zadra, što može uključivati i plovidbu do daljih, vanjskih otoka.

Tečaj je usmjeren na unaprjeđenje već postojećih vještina i praktičnu primjenu već postojećeg teorijskog znanja. Pohađanje prethodnih RYA tečajeva nije preduvjet za dolazak na RYA Coastal Skipper tečaj, ali se snažno preporučuje. Također, da biste mogli kvalitetno pratiti program tečaja vaše teorijsko znanje mora biti minimalno na razini uspješno završenog Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster™ Offshore teorijskog tečaja, a vaše praktične vještine na razini višoj od uspješno završenog RYA Day Skipper tečaja.

Na tečaju ćete dobiti i ilustrativan priručnik  (na jednostavnom engleskom jeziku) koji će vam pomoći da savladate program tečaja.

RYA Coastal Skipper – Što ćete učiti?

Na RYA Coastal Skipper tečaju, od prvog ćete dana biti u ulozi skipera na zahtjevnijim rutama. Biti ćete za kormilom kod zahtjevnih manevara, na motor i jedra. Instruktor će biti trener koji će vam ukazati na moguće krive navike, pokazati trikove profesionalaca i otkriti neke ‘tajne zanata’. Pritom će vaše vještine i znanja te izdržljivost biti dovedene do krajnjih granica. Također, bit ćete podvrgnuti stalnoj, rigoroznoj procjeni prema izrazito visokim kriterijima.

Učit ćete kako pripremiti brod i posadu za zahtjevno i dugotrajno odobalno jedrenje, koje uključuje i jedrenje noću, te prelazak prometnih shema brodova trgovačke mornarice. Učit ćete kako planirati takvo jedrenje, uzimajući u obzir utjecaj širih vremenskih sustava te struje plime i oseke. Učit ćete i kako prema smjeru vjetra, barometru i obliku oblaka predvidjeti kakvo vas vrijeme očekuje. Također, radit ćete i na naprednom korištenju GPS-a i VHF-a.

Tajne naprednog jedrenja

Otkrit ćete i kako se radi navigacija ‘na slijepo’, koji su postupci u slučaju da vas na moru zatekne magla, te kako pratiti konturu dubine u uvjetima smanjene vidljivosti. Kako pri plovidbi i navigaciji koristiti tranzite, pokrivene smjerove, vodeća svjetla i znakove te azimute koji vas drže u zoni sigurnosti. Također, učit ćete voditi navigaciju i pilotirati kroz kanal te ulaziti u luke i marine noću. Kako stići na unaprijed određenu poziciju, usred mora, s pomoću samo ručnog kompasa i karte.

Pristajat ćete, hvatati bovu i sidriti se na jedra te pomoću konopa ‘premještati’ brod na vezu. Učit ćete i kako se te zašto ‘trima’ jarbol, napredno trimanje jedra ovisno o snazi vjetra.  Kako jedrilicom upravljati samo korištenjem jedara i ostalih dostupnih pomagala, bez kormila. Kraćenje jedra tijekom manevara te kako se i zašto stavlja ‘preventer’ na boom u slučaju jedrenja niz vjetar.

Učit ćete i nekoliko načina kako se efikasno vratiti po člana posade koji je pao u more, te postupke izvlačenja. Na tečaju će biti riječi i o situacijama helikopterskog spašavanja, načinu upotrebe splavi za spašavanje, te upotrebi rezervnog kormila i zavlačnog sidra.

RYA Coastal Skipper – Što na kraju?

Nakon pozitivne evaluacije instruktora i završetka tečaja dobit ćete međunarodno priznati certifikat s fotografijom. Certifikat potvrđuje da ste uspješno savladali program RYA Coastal Skipper tečaja. Kao potvrdu usvojenih znanja i vještina, dobit ćete RYA logbook u kojem se navodi  koliko ste NM prejedrili tijekom tečaja. U njemu ćete moći voditi bilješke o svojim budućim tečajevima i jedrenjima.

RYA Coastal Skipper praktični tečaj je i neizostavna priprema za polaganje ispita za kvalifikacije RYA Yachtmaster™ Coastal i RYA Yachtmaster™ Offshore koje možete komercijalno podržati i s njima raditi u nautici, ili prijevozu putnika diljem svijeta, uz ograničenja koja se odnose na duljinu plovila i kategorije mora.
