The Odyssey is a comprehensive 5-month programme that takes candidates from an entry-level Competent Crew status all the way to Yachtmaster Ocean – 200-ton unlimited commercial license.
Structured to suit novices and experienced sailors alike, the first 5 weeks of the programme is a foundation phase comprising alternating weeks of shore-based theory and a week of practical sailing.
The Foundation Phase consists of RYA Competent Crew, RYA Day Skipper Theory, RYA Day Skipper Practical, RYA Yachtmaster Theory, RYA Yachtmaster Practical and RYA Yachtmaster Ocean Theory, RYA Short Range Radio Certificate and Power Boat Level II.
This is followed by preparation and an approximately 2-month mileage trip either to Rio (in January) or Madagascar (in June), returning to Cape Town.
The Odyssey not only gives candidates sufficient confidence and experience to sit the RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore assessment, and the RYA Ocean Oral exam, it also offers incredible offshore sailing and is a truly life-changing experience.
This comprehensive package provides students with no previous experience the opportunity to get the practical and theoretical training, as well as the mileage required to achieve an RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore Certificate of Competence – a 200-ton limited commercial license.
The mileage module of the Offshore programme is a return leg from Cape Town to Durban. On successful completion, you will be able to work on a variety of sailing yachts as a: charter skipper, flotilla skipper, corporate day sailing skipper, cruising instructor, delivery skipper or first mate.
This well-rounded programme provides novice students with the opportunity to gain the practical and theoretical training required in to achieve a commercially endorsed RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Coastal Certificate of Competence.
Sailing takes place around the scenic Cape Peninsula and up and down the lower West Coast of South Africa. You will also round the Cape of Good Hope many times, which is a definite sailing milestone, given its often-challenging sailing conditions.
This basic 3-week programme gives you the minimum requirements for starting out in the Super Yacht Industry, or to charter a yacht in the Mediterranean.
