So you want to be a yachting instructor?
A yachting instructor uses their skills and experience to teach students how to competently navigate and sail a yacht and how to safely command its crew.
What does a yachting instructor do?
A commercially endorsed Yachtmaster ticket with a Cruising Instructor endorsement will qualify you to teach to RYA Day Skipper level. You’ll be responsible for teaching groups of students by giving clear practical demonstrations and accurately explaining any part of the yachting syllabus in detail. You will need to be engaging and patient, encouraging your students to learn to sail a yacht with confidence.
Skippers with 7,000 miles and a seasons teaching experience will be eligible for the RYA Yachtmaster Instructor course.
There are sailing schools all over the UK, and all around the world, so you’ll have the option to work locally or travel and teach abroad.
