Description

What is the Yachtmaster conversion exam?

Holders of the Yachtmaster Coastal or Yachtmaster Offshore sail Certificate of Competence may take a conversion exam to obtain the equivalent power certificate of competence. Candidates may also convert from power to sail.

The same rules apply whether you are converting from sail to power, or from power to sail, but the exam for converting from power to sail may take slightly longer.

The exam will take about three hours. The examiner may ask questions or set tasks on any part of the syllabus but will concentrate on those sections which are markedly different in a sailing boat, eg boat handling, passage planning, radar
