The Day Skipper Theory course is a comprehensive introduction to cruising for inexperienced skippers. The course equips you with enough knowledge to navigate around familiar waters by day. A basic knowledge of lights is also included to introduce you to night cruising.
It is full of fantastic information from tying a knot, tidal height, tidal streams, weather to plotting a course to steer and passage plans. Once you have completed the course you will be safer for yourself, your friends and family and after completing an RYA Day Skipper Practical course, you should be well on your way to being a first class skipper.
During COVID-19 we are offering ONLINE LIVE DAY SKIPPER THEORY Sessions at £375 per person. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place or make an enquiry.

Why Choose an Interactive Course?
The course is made up of detailed lessons, most of which are animated for easy learning. Each lesson is followed by a set of questions which can be answered online. Once an answered is submitted, the feedback is instant in the form of a detailed answer page. Some will be forwarded to your instructor who will provide personal feedback and help where required.
You can book your course online and be working straight away on the sections where the RYA pack is not needed. Your RYA pack, containing your charts, RYA almanac, RYA course notes and course plotter, will be posted the same day.
