Yachtmaster Offshore – limited
The RYA/MCA Yachtmaster is recognised all over the work and is seen as the benchmark in professional sailing. The Yachtmaster Offshore, limited to 150 miles from shore is our the most popular course. Customers choose this course if you are planning to work or sail within close to shore
Offshore or Ocean – unlimited
The main difference between Yachtmaster offshore and Yachtmaster Ocean is Astro Navigation, the ability to fix your position using only the sun and stars. You will learn to master Celestial navigation in the classroom before leaving on a 600 mile passage to put what you have learnt into practice
Flying Fish run all Yachtmaster training courses in Sydney, Australia. Training in Sydney offers so much more than the hot climate, you will learn to sail on the beautiful Sydney harbour and offshore along the East coast of Australia.
There is so much to do off the water too. You can relax on beautiful sun-drenched beaches, enjoy world class food and of course learn to surf!
If you are looking for something a little closer to home then we offer shore based training courses as well as practical sailing courses, all out options lead to an RYA or MCA qualification.
