Overview

Course
Syllabus

RYA Day Skipper is a hands-on course that is highly recommended for anyone who regularly sails on board a yacht. It’s designed to improve skills and build knowledge of all aspects of life at sea whilst skippering a sailing yacht during short passages.

You will spend 5 days navigating and sailing your way across the Solent and Southampton, including some night sailing. Under the watchful eye of your instructor, you’ll practice your skippering skills, ensuring your crew are safe and happy. You will plan and put into practice a variety of different passages, including the execution of pilotage plans skills in to (and out of!) busy rivers, anchorages and marinas. Other key skills include interpreting weather forecasts, engine maintenance, sail handling and sail trim.

Armed with your RYA Skipper qualification, you will boost your confidence to take charge of a sailing yacht and explore beautiful harbours and anchorages. You can also apply for your International Certificate of Competence (ICC) enabling you to charter a sailing yacht during a holiday at home or abroad.
