Intensive 9 day course consisting of a combination of the Day Skipper shorebased course and the Day Skipper practical course, offering a fast track towards the RYA Day Skipper Certificate of Competence.
The course equips you with the knowledge to navigate around familiar waters by day. A basic knowledge of lights is also included to introduce you to night cruising.
The course is taught as a 9 days intensive course.
Ability after the course
At the end of the course you should achieve a level of seamanship and boat handling up to the standard required to skipper a small cruising yacht safely by day in familiar tidal and non-tidal waters under normal conditions.
We recommend as supporting courses RYA Diesel Engine and RYA Radar and Practical C-MASTERS courses, in particular Passage Planning.
We recommend the RYA Weather book, RYA Navigation handbook, and the RYA Sea Survival book.
