  What's in the RST workbook?

RST workbook version 7

The Recreational Skipper's Ticket (RST) Workbook contains all the material that you will need to know for the RST. It covers both the theory and practical sections of the RST assessment.

The workbook organises all the relevant information into the following chapters:

  • Recreational Skipper's Ticket (introduction and overview).
  • Rules and regulations.
  • Collision avoidance.
  • Maintenance.
  • Safety equipment.
  • Trip planning.
  • Emergency situations.
  • Practical assessment.

At the end of each chapter there is a set of self-test questions, with answers in the back. These questions are similar to those used in the theory assessment. If you can answer all of them correctly, you should be able to pass the assessment. You can also try our practice quizzes below.

The workbook also contains instructions, drawings and pace notes on how to carry out the various practice skills that will be assessed.
