Catalina is a Sigma 33 cruising/racing yacht. It's available for all students of the department to use under the supervision of an experienced Skipper who holds a minimum of an RYA Day Skipper Practical qualification.

Our students have the opportunity to gain their RYA Day Skipper theory and practical qualification through a course offered by the department.

For year one students, the theoretical course can count towards their degree. The practical aspects of the course are taught on board Catalina. Catalina Article
