Most students will have competed the RYA Day Skipper Theory course before joining the practical, although this is not always necessary.
Over the 5 days you will cover berthing and boat handling in a range of situations, carry out several sailing passages, including the navigation. Students will take it in turns to skipper the yacht
This is a great opportunity to learn not only from our experienced instructors but also the others on the boat and participate in life onboard a cruising yacht.
This course is popular with those looking to charter yachts in the UK and abroad, as it is often the minimum requirement for chartering.
