I am new to sailing and wish to know where to start
the starting point for navigation theory is the day skipper theory course which starts of with very simple lessons and quizzes on parts of the boat, sails etc. It then moves onto navigation, tidal heights, weather, collision regulations and much more and give students a really good grounding in preparation for their Day Skipper practical course.

I have some experience but no formal qualification.
The practical experience you have will put you in a really good position to take either the Day Skipper theory course or the fastrack to Yachtmaster Offshore / Coastal Yachtmaster theory course.

I have completed the Day Skipper theory and wish to move on
The next stage is the Yachtmaster Offshore/Coastal Yachtmaster theory course followed by the coastal practical course or if you have the required miles and experience the Yachtmaster exam.
The Yachtmaster exam prerequisite is 2500 miles including 5 passages of over 50 miles, two as skipper and two overnight.

I have completed my Yachtmaster Offshore and would like to advance to ocean.
Take the ocean theory and assessment.
The requirements to become an Ocean Yachtmaster: RYA Yachtmaster offshore certificate, Ocean theory, a passage of over 800 miles 500 of them more than 50 miles offshore, a set of sights to show your examiner and finally the oral exam where your sights are looked at and you are asked a series of questions about ocean passage making.
