Tips for gaining your Ocean Yachtmaster! FCS Podcast

Our training partner First Class Sailing has commissioned a series of podcasts including this interesting two-parter with Nigel Rennie, an RYA Yachtmaster examiner.

In Part I Nigel provides some background and insight into the Yachmaster scheme and in Part II shares excellent hints and tips to gaining your Yachtmaster qualification.


Nigel Rennie started sailing in 1984 whilst serving in the Army (REME). He qualified as a Yachtmaster Instructor in 1990 becoming an RYA Examiner a few years later. He’s skippered large sail training yachts worldwide, crossing most of the oceans and venturing south as far as the Falkland Islands.

Presently Rear Commodore Sailing for Warsash Sailing Club, Nigel splits his sailing time between instructing and examining Yachtmasters, teaching Celestial Navigation, offshore racing safety and boat handling skills. Recreational sailing includes supporting club sailing and family chartering.

Nigel is interviewed by FCS Podcast producer, and CA member, Ceri Hurford-Jones.
