Further information

Allabroad Yachtmaster Training Established in 1999

The winning formula did not happen overnight!  We have been delivering RYA Yachtmaster training courses for 20 years.  During this time we have fine tuned our approach by carefully analysing our trainee Yachtmasters' feedback but also feedback from the RYA Yachtmaster examiners, and our highly experienced team of full Yachtmaster Instructors.

Experience is key.

We achieve a consistently high Yachtmaster offshore pass rate by choosing the very best FULL Yachtmaster Instructors and making sure our fast track team spend at least 10 weeks with a Full Yachtmaster Instructor, a good majority of the time at the low ratios too.  There is no substitute for experienced Full Yachtmaster Instruction and smaller group sizes.

Location Location Location

We are Gibraltar based but most, if not all, your Yachtmaster passage making will be in the waters of Portugal and Spain. The tides and shipping traffic of the Gibraltar Straits are comparable to the UK, and the Bay of Gibraltar is a 24 hour service station of the seas with one of the worlds busiest container ports in Algeciras; the constant bunkering makes for a great place to practice challenging night drills. 

Low Low Ratio

Fast Track Yachtmaster is about 75% hands on training so if there are too many people on each yacht you will not get the experience you need to get to grips with sailing a yacht.  We keep our sailing days to never more than five students to one Instructor on board one yacht, with a good majority of time at sea less than this ratio. You will be actively navigating and taking responsibly for the yacht from day one.

More facilities....

All the ASA Yachtmaster Fastrack clients use the shore based facility daily when in Gibraltar during theory weeks and at the weekend, it's essential to have somewhere quiet to study away from the yacht.  We would never even attempt to deliver any of your Yachtmaster theory elements cramped in a small yacht with one chart between 5 students!

In conjunction with 2 large classrooms, the shore-based area offers a crew study area open 24/7 with keycode access for safe luggage storage, a place where you can watch a movie, use the free WIFI to catch up with friends & family and a quiet place to study too. 15 weeks is a long time away from home, so we endeavour to ensure your Yachtmaster training with us is a comfortable as possible.
