Advance your career with the Trinity House RYA Yachtmaster Scholarship

28 February 2020

If you’re an aspiring crew member looking to work in the small commercial vessel sector, then the Trinity House RYA Yachtmaster™ Scholarship could help fund your career progression. 


Since its launch in 2018, the scholarship has helped 12 candidates further their careers by funding further training in one of the eligible RYA courses and qualifications. This training in navigation and seamanship is a vital part of many crew members’ maritime education and mandatory for career progression.


Due to the high level of employment opportunities in this area, the RYA and Trinity House hope to boost the careers of many aspiring boaters across a wide variety of activities, including those working in the superyacht industry.


The RYA’s Director of Training, Richard Falk, said, ‘it has long been the case that RYA qualifications form the cornerstone of the small commercial vessel sector and it’s essential for the marine industry to invest in top talent to remain the highly regarded industry it is today.


With the deadline for applications for the next scholarship coming up soon, we encourage all yacht crew (UK citizens) who can demonstrate exceptional boating, navigation or leadership skills to apply.
