Develop the confidence to sail extended passages along the coast and to sail by night. This 5 day course is an ideal bridge between the Day Skipper course and the full RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Coastal examination course.


The RYA Training Scheme is designed in such a way that in order to learn to sail safely and successfully, further experience or consolidation is often required before advancing to the next level. This can be achieved in a variety of ways.

  • 1 For those that have achieved Day Skipper Practical qualification or higher why take one of our Short Ocean Passages and really put those skills into practice.
  • 2 Alternatively, join us for a one or two week cruise around the Canary Islands which will help increase your confidence and build your mileage.

Don't forget that you are very welcome along at any time just for a refresher or brush up or even just to get away from it all and go sailing! You don't have to be booked on a specific course. Whatever your reason for wanting to learn to sail you are assured of a warm welcome and patient instructors who do have a sense of humour!

Carbery Sailing specialises in beginner's sailing and Fast Track RYA Day Skipper courses. We also undertake adventure sailing cruises on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way, Ocean Passages to Spain, Madeira, the Azores and the Canaries on a Hallberg-Rassy 46.
