I too was wondering if there exists the mechanism to remove or knock back a skippers ticket as per the merchant navy?
Slight fred drift, I have a chum with an aft cockpit sistership to yours who has trundled back and forth across the Atlantic some 35 times without mishap except for one bent upper mast when a fitting failed-also races a J very very well indeed without mishap- different skipper mentality and an absolute joy to both sail with and learn from whilst quaffing ale)

I am not sure whether it is the RYA or MCA that rescind the CofC.
The Rival 41A, nice yacht and a good layout with an aft cabin as well. They are a bit harder to find on the market than the 41C; good sea keeping qualities indeed.Having time is unavoidable.

These days that (in theory) means only commercially endorsed certificates, although previously non-endorsed certificates were revoked (as that's all there was).
To date I've never heard of a skipper of a privately used boat (ie not being used commercially) losing their Yachtmaster ticket, but maybe others know differently.

"The Skipper reckons that he could have gotten back to safety alone without the freak wave...."
See my earlier post about the excuse they will come up with.....
The excuse will be that it was a perfectly safe trip within the capabilities of the boat and a good learning experience... it was just bad luck they got pooped...
He doesnt get it. They would have gotten back to safety... with no one hurt... if he had paid attention to the weather forecast and not set out to begin with.
This outfit, and this skipper, are incapable of managing risk.
