Publications for students on RYA theory and practical courses
If you are studying for the Dayskipper, Yachtmaster Coastal or Yachtmaster Offshore courses with the RYA, you will find the books listed below to be very helpful as background reading in addition to the course work in the class room or afloat.
The RYA published books covering Navigation, weather and VHF are essential reading and most students find that A Seaman's Guide to the Rule of the Road, is the best means of learning the collision avoidance rules.
The RYA Navigation Handbook (2nd ed)
covers all the navigation theory required for the Dayskipper, Coastal Skipper and Yachtmaster Offshore courses.
The RYA Navigation Exercises has no explanation of navigation technique, but is a series of questions similar to those used on the RYA theory courses, with the answers for each given at the back.
The RYA Weather Handbook - Northern Hemisphere is written to cover the RYA Syllabus up to Yachtmaster Ocean. Because it is focused specifically on the items required for the syllabus, it is ideal for any yacht skipper.
The Seaman's Guide to the Rule of the Road covers all the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea in a series of programmed learning exercises. This means that this vital subject can be absorbed in easily digested chunks and is ideal for all small craft skippers, although it is also used extensively by professional seamen.
