RYA Yachtmaster Preparation Course and Exam

*There is no need to pay the exam fee until the end of the preparation course, and only if you feel that you are ready to be examined by an external examiner. Exam fees are payable to the examiner when he/she arrives (currently £189 for Yachtmaster Coastal and £220 for Yachtmaster Offshore). The fee goes direct to the RYA with your exam application, so you will need to bring your cheque book or credit card.
