Course Aim

The RYA Day Skipper practical course is taught onboard a motor cruiser of at least 7mtrs L.O.A. It aims to teach pilotage, navigation, seamanship & boat handling up to the standard required to skipper a motor cruiser safely by day in waters in which the student is familiar. There is also an introduction to night cruising. The course is run over 4-6 days depending on the pace and experience of the students

Course Content
  • Preparation for sea
  • Boat handling – manoeuvring
  • The art of navigation
  • Pilotage
  • Passage making
  • Meteorology
  • Rules of the road
  • Engines
  • Emergency situations
  • Night cruising
Previous experience Some shore based experience desirable and some practical experience useful but is not essential. On the Day Skipper Course the vessel will cover a minimum of 100 nautical miles for qualification.

Own Boat Tuition

We recommend this if you intend to purchase or already have your own vessel. Before instruction can begin, the instructor must insure that the boat is in sound condition and is adequately equipped both for safety and effective instruction. Many of our existing clients have found that having a course structured around their particular vessel and equipment will give them more confidence in their cruising ability.

                Remember, this is your pleasure leisure time so ‘enjoy the journey’
