Yachtmaster Ocean: to sail without limits, the world is your oyster!
Yachtmaster Ocean Certificate of Competence
The Yachtmaster Ocean certificate of competence is the jewel in the crown of the RYA: to be a Master of Yachts unlimited by mileage. You should apply for this course when you have achieved RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore status.
Another Aigua Special:
Train with Aigua Sea School and cover the theory elements of the tightly adhered-to syllabus before stepping onboard an Aigua training yacht and doing it for real. We added a sixth day to our Yachtmaster Ocean course so you can put your newly gained theoretical skills into practice: taking real sights at sea and making real compass checks as the yacht sails through the day. Play with the stars and moon, should the weather permit, and plot your global position, onboard, in real conditions.
We aim to make our Ocean exam candidates the finest in the Med, and we believe this course will secure that goal. Using the nautical pages for the current year and the present day you will calculate the time of the meridian for your day at sea; you will take morning sights, noon sights, afternoon sights, moon sights, star sights (the latter two weather permitting). The sextant will feel natural in your hand, the compass checks be clear and uncomplicated; the sight reduction tables not feared but your friend.
Our ocean training will make the subject come to life and you will gain so much more confidence in your new skills. Specific joining information will be accessible to you after you booked your course.
The Oral Exam
If you are working towards your Yachtmaster Ocean Certificate of Competence, completion of this shorebased course exempts you from the written exam.
Please note that the day at sea is a training exercise and therefore the sights taken on this trip cannot be submitted for your exam.
´’Sights’ for an assessment must be taken independently by the exam candidate.
The Aigua Sea School team will help you prepare for the independent Ocean examination that takes the form of an interview.
You’ll need to pay the Ocean oral examination fee directly to the RYA on your exam application form as it is a separate fee. For 2019 the Ocean exam fee is £166(Click here to visit the RYA page)
Upon successful achievement of Yachtmaster Ocean status, and with your certificate commercially endorsed, you can work as a Master of commercial vessels of up to 200gt, subject to the MCA’s codes of practice, worldwide.
The Yachtmaster Ocean certificate is also a pre-requisite for the MCA’s Chief Mate, Master 500 and Master 3000 qualifications.

Super team and great experience! The best!! Thanks for everything!
Just passed my Yachtmaster with this bunch and can’t recommend them highly enough. From the moment I walked through the door I felt really welcome, all the staff were great and explained everything really clear, definitely will be back for more courses!! Thanks guys !!
Very friendly people. I am Spanish and my English is not very good but they care about this and I could get my ticket. Spanish people thinking in the Yachtmaster course definitely ask for Aigua Sea School in Palma.
Linda, you helped me believe that I was capable of achieving my Yachtmaster despite the set backs I had, I can’t thank you enough, also for taking your own time to run through some things with me so I felt more confident. THANK YOU. Johns theory classes were very interesting, he is so passionate, organized…
