The Day Skipper is a course for aspiring skippers with some yachting experience and basic navigation and sailing skills.
Learn to skipper a short passage with the instructor on hand to give advice and encouragement and ensure your safety. Experience being in charge, taking credit when it all goes well and being responsible when it doesn’t. We encourage that you have at least taken the Competent Crew Course with us or have spent at least 5 days on a yacht acting as an effective crew member.
We strongly recommend that you complete the Day Skipper Shorebased Course first, which will give you the background theory knowledge making the navigation work aboard much easier. You will be required to have assumed knowledge of theory to the level of RYA Day Skipper. Please be aware that the instructor will test you on this level of knowledge.
Completion of this course will allow you to then obtain an ICC (International Certificate of Competency) which will then allow you to charter any one of our fleet of 1720s or our larger yachts, and is the international standard for charter abroad.
