4 days RYA Day Skipper shore based course one week followed by the 5 day practical course on the next week. The course starts on a Monday morning and concludes on the following Friday afternoon. This completes your full Day Skipper qualification in a fast-track fashion. This course is intensive and requires concentration and commitment to learning.
For the theory elements, all parts of the syllabus will be covered in our Brixham classroom and all training aids are provided by us. There will also normally be a small amount of homework set each evening.
During the practical course elements you will build on previous experience under supervision from one of our experienced RYA Instructors. You will be directing the crew, coming alongside, handling the boat under sail and power, navigating during the day and getting some night hours under your belt. You will also learn the basics of engine maintenance and be expected to take control in a man overboard emergency situation. Price includes accommodation on board one of our yachts, all meals, fuel & mooring fees during the practicl course.
