RYA Day Skipper Practical

RYA Day Skipper Practical

Now that you know how to move about the boat and are reasonably competent at sailing it's time to learn how to conduct passages.

The Day Skipper practical course either follows on from the Day Skipper Shorebased classroom course or is a logical progression from the Competent Crew Course

It's a 5-day practical course, spent on the yacht, and intended to teach pilotage, navigation, seamanship and boat handling to the standard required to skipper a small cruising yacht safely by day and in tidal waters. The course is taught on our Jeanneau 31ft yacht 'Este' and includes navigation, pilotage, safety, and passage making and culminates in a 100 mile passage and a night entry into a familiar port.
