The practical component of the Recreational Skippers Ticket is done on the water usually in our training vessel but you have the choice of using your own if you wish although additional paperwork will need to be signed due to insurance issues as our training vessel has special insurances as you could imagine.

The practical section is made up of 11 tasks which can also be found at the back section of the Recreational Skipper’s Ticket Workbook which you can find out about in the theory section.

TASK 1- Situational awareness and general seamanship View video

TASK 2- Securing the boat to a pontoon View video

TASK 3- Performing a safety briefing to your passengers View video

TASK 4- Doing pre-start checks and start your motor View video

TASK 5- Logging on View video

TASK 6- Departing a berth View video

TASK 7- Person overboard View video

TASK 8- Steer a transit View video

TASK 9- Controlled stop View video

TASK 10- Docking the boat View video

TASK 11- Logging off View video

On the course we demonstrate the above tasks the you practise them and then when you are ready to be assessed we assess one task after the other. You can miss 6 of the criteria that we train you in and still pass.

RST Practical Assessments Can Be Arranged For All Ages 14 and over. As all people completing practical assessment must also complete theory assessment both are nearly always rolled into the one course.

Specific practical assessments are available by request and price depends on location, time, numbers and boat being used.
