Jolly Parrot Sailing's Professional Yachtmaster Fastrack program is designed as a cost effective solution to suit your learning requirements without compromising on the quality and coverage of these much sought after RYA qualifications. We offer a number of different paths for you to reach your ultimate goal and our program is specifically designed by sailing experts for individuals who want to gain internationally recognised qualifications whether it’s for a career or lifestyle change, as part of a gap year experience or sabbatical.
What‘s covered on this course?
We have tailored our Professional Yachtmaster Fastrack program to give you the best possible experience and training utilising the extensive knowledge and experience of our instructors. In addition to our superior instructors, we are the only school based in Gibraltar to offer important elements of the fastrack program in UK waters. This not only enhances the learning experience by visiting different countries coastlines, but also provides an opportunity to experience the extensive and sometimes ferocious tides of the south coast of the UK, which simply cannot be found in Mediterranean waters. We also incorporate race training and compete in actual races as part of the course which adds valuable experience and teaches skills you would not learn elsewhere.
Our program is broken down into a modular system with three key milestones: Day Skipper, Yachtmaster Coastal and Yachtmaster Offshore. The unique advantage of this is that you can enter and leave the program at any of these milestones depending on your starting knowledge and end goal. The entire program is designed to really mould you to become a professional RYA Yachtmaster with the credibility to go forward into a rewarding career. Unlike many other Fastrack schemes, we do not just teach you to pass the examinations, we really teach you to sail and command your vessel in a professional way.
