Offshore Cruising Club

Training and grading

All Overlord trips carry a Skipper, Mate, Watchleaders and Competent Crew. Each role is an OCC club grading, which we assess under a training and grading scheme designed to help club members understand how to sail our yacht safely while building their skills, experience and enjoyment.

All our skippers can provide training, on any trip. We also organise some RYA courses each year through recognised sea schools and run club training weekends and days (such as manoeuvring, racing and spinnaker skills) on board Overlord. Our club grades are linked to RYA theoretical and practical qualifications from Competent Crew to Yachtmaster Offshore, and including first aid and DSC.

Further details of Overlord’s training and grading scheme are in the member’s area of this website .
