Qualifying Sea Time
RYA YachtmasterTM – Qualifying Sea Time …
With our Dutch cabin cruiser “High Hopes” and our Princess 33 “Seafarer II” which are both category 2 coded (60 miles from a safe haven) we are able to offer a great opportunity for up to 3 persons to gain sea time in the capacity of skipper while enjoying a selection of British & French ports
A crew of two from “Ellis marine services” will be on board in an advisory capacity to oversee a safe passage but it will be down to you to organize all aspects of your qualifying passages
Ramsgate will be the starting point with a plethora of port opportunities to visit, a full circle can be done with Ramsgate the last port or if there is enough interest we can do an alternative end port for the first group and then Ramsgate being the return groups final port call
